Slender Rosemary Grapefruit Fizz

Slender Rosemary Grapefruit Fizz | The Slender Student Listen, I’m not that picky when it comes to cocktails. While I prefer something not too sweet (I’m pretty sure that vodka cherry sours and moscato disintegrate my teeth upon contact), most of my fickle preferences are quickly forgotten once I’m on Sixth Street, faced with the prospect of a free drink.

(…A free drink from someone I know that I’d never leave unattended. Play it safe, Slender Students.) Slender Rosemary Grapefruit Fizz | The Slender Student Anyway, back to what I was saying. Yeah, I’m not that selective or creative about adult beverages, which might be why you don’t see a lot of them posted here.

I try and stay away from calorie-laden mixers, chasers, or flavored alcohols. Slender Rosemary Grapefruit Fizz | The Slender Student Every once in awhile, though, I’m inspired to craft something new. Today’s inspiration is due in large part to the February’s beverage themed Recipe Redux assignment. I contemplated making a slender hot chocolate, but this just seemed way more fun. I also happened to have a stash of grapefruit La Croix sitting in my fridge that just needed to be introduced to a little liquor.
