History

This drink was created by Mixology Events’ head bartender and events manager, Jake Rogers for a bar he worked at in his hometown of Bristol:

“I created this drink when I was working at a bar in Bristol called The Milk Thistle, it actually just got voted 16th in the UK’s top 50 bars. I was working as head bartender there at the time. Obviously vodka is a really versatile spirit but it can be hard to showcase because of its neutral flavour, but when complemented with the right fruit ingredients it can really sing, the grapefruit really accentuated the dryness of the vodka and it turned out a real summer-sipper with a subtle perfumey flavour.”

Pink grapefruit is an essential ingredient to this cocktail and gives it its distinctive citrus-floral bitterness. Grapefruits are not a naturally occurring fruit but an accidental hybrid of two other citrus fruits, the Jamaican sweet orange (itself an ancient hybrid of asian origin) and the Indonesian pomelo. It’s thought the hybrid came about in Barbados where Pomelo seeds were introduced from Asia by a British naval officer named Captain Shaddock. When it was first discovered the grapefruit was known as ‘the forbidden fruit.’
