Campari, Grapefruit & Pomegranate Cocktail

May/June 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (11 votes)

Balance herbaceous Campari with the sweet-tart flavors of pomegranate and grapefruit. This dusty pink drink looks festive in a stemmed wineglass with a twist of orange zest. For a slightly sweeter drink, use orange juice instead of grapefruit. To make a nonalcoholic version, omit the Campari and add an extra 1/3 cup of each juice.



READER'S COMMENT:
