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 rocks glass and rub the rim with a slice of grapefruit, then gently dip the rim into the sumac salt.

2. Put ice cubes into the sumac-salt-rimmed glass. Add the remaining ingredients and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
