Sumac Salty Dog

The tart, refreshing grapefruit echoes the piquant quality of the sumac, giving this drink a surprisingly dynamic, layered flavor. And it’s gorgeous: pink on pink.

Makes 1

1 teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon sumac

1 slice of grapefruit

2 ounces Ketel One Botanical Grapefruit & Rose

2 ounces fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice

2 ounces Fever Tree club soda

1 grapefruit twist

1. Mix the sumac and salt in a small bowl. Pour the mixture out evenly on a small, flat plate. Take a coupe glass and rub the rim with a slice of grapefruit, then gently dip the rim into the sumac salt.

2. Put ice cubes into a cocktail shaker. Add the grapefruit juice and Ketel One Botanical Grapefruit & Rose and shake well to chill and combine.

3. Pour into the prepared coupe glass and float the club soda to finish. Garnish with a grapefruit twist.
