Kempinski Cocktail

According to the Guide, this one "probably originated at the Hotel Kempinski in Berlin." I'll need to see if our friend Snappy can confirm that. She's my Berlin expert.

The drink itself is a blast of Bacardi and grapefruit. "Serves Two!" says the Guide. Well, sure, if your inclined to share. If not, you're all set to enjoy a tasty treat, a bit of summer sunshine on a wintery day.

1 part Bacardi rum
1 part Cointreau (we used Triple Sec, because we're Cointreau-less at the moment)
2 parts Grapefruit Juice


Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a cherry.
And speaking of cherries, the cherry tree we'll be putting in the back yard hasn't arrived yet, but our lilac bushes have!

Well, 'bushes' is more of a future descriptive... Right now we have 25 little bare root sticks to plunk into the ground. But lilacs! I should make up a lilac colored cocktail to celebrate.
