Day 68, Cocktail 64

They say every thing is bigger in Texas.  Personally, I think Alaska is a bit bigger, but I guess I won’t quibble on the size issue.  What I do know is that this particular cocktail, sampled earlier this week while I was on my grapefruit binge was pretty good.  The original recipe called for honey, but I substituted Krupnik, my Polish honey flavored liqueur.  The results were very satisfying, producing a drink that was pleasant and balanced.  I continue to be amazed at how the krupnik / grapefruit combo works in so many different cocktails!  Saddle this one up on a warm, sunny afternoon and head for your favorite beach or pool!

Combine the gin, grapefruit juice and krupnik in a mixing glass with ice and stir to combine and chill.  Strain into a collins glass filled with ice cubes.  Top with the seltzer water.
