Grapefruit Gastrique: A Sweet ‘n’ Sour Seasonal Mixer

Eat + Drink

OK, all you cocktail adventurers out there, Baltimore’s B&O American Brasserie head bartender Brendan Dorr has a delish, seasonal mixer to add to your bar arsenal this spring: grapefruit gastrique.

It’s the peak of grapefruit season, so juice yourself a fresh one and whip up this simple recipe, then let your mixology imagination run wild with the possibilities. Vodka? Tequila? Rum? All would be great choices. And since grapefruit is native to Barbados (it’s even considered one of the “Seven Wonders of Barbados”), we’re leaning toward some kind of rum concoction. With a little umbrella in it.
