Ruby in the Rough Instructions

The Ruby in the Rough is a vibrant and refreshing cocktail that combines the flavors of tangy grapefruit, sweet raspberry, and a hint of mint. This cocktail is perfect for a summer day or any time you want a burst of fruity flavors.

To make a Ruby in the Rough, you will need a shaker, ice cubes, grapefruit juice, raspberry syrup, mint leaves, and a garnish of fresh mint and raspberries. Begin by filling the shaker halfway with ice cubes. Add 2 ounces of grapefruit juice and 1 ounce of raspberry syrup to the shaker. Next, take a few mint leaves, lightly bruise them to release their flavor, and add them to the shaker.

Close the shaker and shake well for about 10 seconds, allowing all the ingredients to mix and chill. Grab a chilled cocktail glass and strain the mixture from the shaker into the glass. Garnish your Ruby in the Rough by adding a fresh mint sprig and a few raspberries to the glass. This will not only enhance the presentation but also add a burst of extra flavor.

The Ruby in the Rough is best enjoyed immediately, while the flavors are still fresh and vibrant. The combination of tangy grapefruit, sweet raspberry, and refreshing mint creates a delightful and well-balanced cocktail that is sure to impress your friends and family.

Best served in a Cocktail Glass.
