Happy Hour: Going to the Dogs
Aug 19, 2011
I’ve been wanting to post this recipe for awhile, but it’s so labor intensive that I almost didn’t. I like easy cocktails. The kind that you can throw together after a long day, and sip idly in a comfy chair. But let’s just say that the Salted Tarragon Greyhound is not simple and easy.
This recipe is courtesy of the lovely ladies at Coco + Kelley who know good fashion and good libations.
The Salted Tarragon Greyhound
Grapefruit tarragon infused vodka*
*This is where the high-maintenance part of this cocktail come in. Anytime, I have to infuse a liquor or make a syrup, the cocktail falls into special occasion territory.
Freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice, strained of pulp and seeds
Flaky sea salt or kosher salt
Ruby red grapefruit wedges, for garnish
A special occasion cocktail deserves a special occasion dress. This frock from Preen is such a dress. Pair it with a pile of silver bangles and a chic updo for end-of-Summer parties.
