When I was flipping through the internet for cocktail inspiration, I was taken with the Greyhound, a miraculously simple cocktail consisting of only gin and grapefruit juice. Something ripe for riffing on.

My very first Liquor in the ______ back in 2012 was my mulled wine recipe. Things change. Updates are required.
I shit you not, that’s how I do it. Does it look like I could frost a cake with it? Peachy, then I’m done mixing.
