When in vacation,other then the sun and the pool what I really enjoy when in Palm Springs is the ritual of happy hours and specially the fact to go in the yard and pic-king up the grapefruits off the tree and start the cocktails.

The official drink in my house is the Sea Breeze but doing it with fresh juice  make all the difference.

Sea Breeze Cocktail

1 1/2 oz vodka
4 oz cranberry juice
1 oz grapefruit juice

Pour vodka over ice into highball glass. Add mixers. May be garnished with a wedge of lime.

This trip I came up with a new drink,could not find anything approaching on the web,it’s a variation on a Mojito,so I call it Palm Springs Mojito.

Palm Springs Mojito

1 part Malibu Rum
2 parts grapefruit Juice
Club Soda

How to mix the drink
In a glass pour the grapefruit Juice 1/2 tea spoon of sugar,muddle 6/8 mint leaves.Fill with crushed ice,pour the Rum and finish with some Club Soda.
If you like strong drinks just add some rum and if your grapefruits are really sweet forget the sugar.

Enjoy around the pool...

A bientôt,
