A refreshing CH Key Gin cocktail enhanced with lime and grapefruit juice.
If you love a light, refreshing cocktail, this one’s for you. It’s perfect for summer… or any other time of the year you are looking for a crisp cocktail infused with lime and grapefruit.
Key Gin from CH Distillery is the star of the show. With notes of fresh key lime, lavender and white pepper, I knew it would be ideal for a light cocktail with subtle flavor from fresh limes and grapefruit.
It’s distilled from CH Vodka, and it’s considered their “gateway” gin, meaning that it’s light and a crowd-pleaser. Ideal for those might not typically order a gin cocktail.
CH Distillery is Chicago’s local vodka, and also offers Gin, Rum, Bourbon, Amaro, Limoncello and flavored Brandy’s. I’m partial to the Key Gin of course. I mean, look at how well it goes with seasonal fruit. Ready for a cool down??
Fill cocktail glasses with ice and a few fruit slices, and pour in 2 oz. CH Key Gin.
Add 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice… and fill the rest of the glass with seltzer water.
Top it off with a squeeze of lime and a little garnish.
Welcome to your new favorite cocktail.
Whether you’re already a fan of gin or looking for a new drink to serve friends, this one hits the spot. Cool, crisp, and refreshing. We recently mixed them up for a cocktail & appetizer party, and they went so well with the fresh summer food we served. This “gateway” gin was enjoyed by all!
