Pink Russian - in a cocktail shaker, combine 1 cup grapefruit juice, 3 tablespoons vodka, and 2 tablespoons Campari and fill the shaker with ice cubes. Shake the mixture until it is chilled and strain it into a tall 12-ounce glass, chilled. Garnish the drink with a section of grapefruit. Makes 1 drink.
We made El Presidente cocktails with white rum, a spirit we rarely reach for when a cocktail craving hits. But sweetened and shaded with a few drops of homemade grenadine, this sophisticated, pale pink drink is about as summery as they come. I served them with tiny lamb meatballs brushed with pomegranate molasses to highlight the grenadine.
