Cocktails: Gin and Grapefruit Mixer (AKA the GREY FOX)

Beat the Heat with this zingy gin and grapefruit cocktail.

So warm, in fact, that it almost feels like a second summer.  On these long, hot, lazy days the best remedy for beating the heat is a refreshing cocktail under a beach umbrella. Or in the air conditioned comfort of your living room. Try this zingy drink at your next barbeque, pool party or festive gathering… or whenever you feel too hot to carry on!
