Drink of the Week: Grapefruit Martini

This is probably the fruitiest martini you'll see me make. I am not a fan of super-sweet cocktails (fruit margaritas excepted) in general, I prefer drier cocktails. This martini is a smooth, refreshing drink. The grapefruit pulp floats in the glass and makes the drink a little cloudy. If you use a ruby-red grapefruit, the martini turns a little pink - so ladylike.

Grapefruit Martini
In a cocktail shaker, shake together the following:
1 small wedge grapefruit, squeezed
2 ounces Plymouth gin
1/2 ounce dry French vermouth

Shake, shake, shake. Pour into chilled martini glass.
