Yesterday, was girls night out. My friend was coming to visit me and I wanted to make something special for us. I had seen something on the Internet about the great fruit cocktail made with vodka and black pepper. I posted to Facebook that I had gin and that I would post back once I had made my cocktail.
There is a wonderful sauce in the same aisle as the Worcestershire sauce, and it is called Tiger Sauce. This is a sauce that has been around for a very long time and if you haven’t tried it and I suggest you go and do that right away. It gives our real kick to Bloody Marys!
Here’s my recipe for Grapefruit Tiger Martini.
- 1 cup gin
- Half gallon of pink grapefruit juice
- 1 tablespoon tiger sauce
- 4 grapefruit sections
- Freshly grated tri-color pepper
- Club soda
In a nice pitcher, put in the gin and the grapefruit juice, stir and it add Tiger sauce. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Get four martini glasses and wet the rims with a little grapefruit juice. Put the pepper on a saucer, and dip the moist rim of each glass into the pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.
When ready to serve, put ice into a cocktail shaker and add some of the grapefruit mixture. Put a grapefruit section at the bottom of each glass. Shake the cocktail shaker until the mixture is frosted over. Pour into glasses and top with club soda.
