Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Cocktail

Pink Grapfruit & Pineapple Cocktail

Serves 12

  • 2 pink grapefruit
  • 1 cup fresh or thawed frozen raspberries
  • 7 cups fresh or store bought pink grapefruit juice
  • 2 cups packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise
  • Pink sanding sugar, for glasses
  • 12 ounces vodka

Instructions

  1. Cut away peel and pith from grapefruits. Cut each segment on both sides to free from membrane. Set segments aside.
  2. Puree raspberries in a food processor. Press puree through a fine sieve into a bowl: discard seeds. Set aside
  3. Put 1 cup grapefruit juice and the brown sugar into a large saucepan over medium heat. Scrape vanilla seeds from bean into pan with the tip of a paring knife; add bean to pan. Whisk until sugar has dissolved. Raise heat to medium-high. Add grapefruits; cook, stirring occasionally, until segments begin to turn golden brown, 4to 5 minutes. Remove from heat; whisk in raspberry puree. Pour through a fine sieve into a heatproof airtight container; discard solids. Let cool at room temperature. Refrigerate until cold (up to 3 days)
  4. Dip the moistened rims of twelve 8 – ounce glasses in sanding sugar. For each cocktail, combine 2 ounces grapefruit-raspberry mixture, 4 ounces grapefruit juice and 1 ounce of vodka in a cocktail shaker; add ice. Shake 30 seconds; strain into a prepared glass.
  5. For a non alcoholic version, omit the Vodka, and top each drink with pink-grapefruit soda or seltzer. For garnish, thread two grapefruit segments onto each of twelve drink picks, then place on a rimmed baking sheet wrapped tightly in plastic, and freeze. Top each glass with a frozen skewer and serve.
