About the Grapefruit Sour

One of my all time favourite cocktails…such a simple drink.

The addition of Finlandia Grapefruit just takes this drink to another level, it truelly is an amazing and mesmerising spirit.


Get yourself a clean Martini glass

This needs to be chilled, so simply fill it with ice and some water and put to one side

Roll your lemon for around 10–15 seconds on a chopping board – this will make it a lot more juicy

Cut this in half and place it into your lemon squeezer

Measure out 25ml into your jigger and place into your Boston glass

Then add 12.5ml Gomme / sugar syrup and 50ml Finlandia Grapefruit

Top with cubed ice, put the Boston tin on top at a slight angle and hit it firmly, creating a seal

Left hand on the tin, right hand on the bottom of the glass, move your right hand up 45 degrees and SHAKE!!!!

Once the tin is frosted on the outside, then its showtime

Place the Boston tin & tin glass in your left hand, with two fingers on each – the tin should be at the bottom

Then using the palm of your hand, hit the tin where it meets the glass, give it some welly otherwise nothing will happen

Never ever ever do this on a bar top as it’s very dangerous

Hey presto the two will come apart

Get your chilled glass and discard the ice & water, flicking to remove ever last drop – maybe over your mate if they have been bugging you to make this quicker

Put your Hawthorn strainer into the tin and using a fine strainer with the other hand, pour into your Martini glass

Now that is an awesome cocktail!
