Grapefruit Beaut – Bourbon Grapefruit Sipper

Picture of Heather Wibbels, Cocktail Contessa, pouring a cocktailHeather Wibbels
Delve deep into citrus juices with a splash of bourbon added in. It’s a fruit-forward summer drink, served in a tall glass over a lot of ice. Perfect for a lazy afternoon on the porch, or a lovely brunch on the patio.
