Italian Greyhound with RosemaryFebruary 19, 2020
At the end of a particularly tough day, there is little that is more satisfying than a glass of chilled rosé or Prosecco. But, with the anticipation of warmer months ahead, sometimes a gin-based cocktail is in order. If you’re looking for a twist on a classic, this Italian Greyhound will satisfy your cravings. Made with fresh grapefruit juice, gin, and Aperol, this drink is reminiscent of the spring days to come.
For a fun and fresh twist, try mixing minced rosemary with the sugar on the plate before coating your glass.

Italian Greyhound with Rosemary
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 or 2 ounces gin of your choice (I used The Botanist)
- 4 ounces freshly squeezed pink or red grapefruit juice
- 1 ounce Aperol or Campari liqueur
- Rosemary sprig, for garnish
Spread the sugar on a small plate. Using a wedge of fresh citrus, rub the edge of a glass, then press the glass onto the plate, turning to coat.
Fill the glass with crushed ice. Add the gin, juice, and Aperol. Garnish with a rosemary sprig.
Swirl or stir gently, and enjoy!
