What happens when you run out of ice and your guests are asking for more alcohol? You aim for whatever you got refridgerated. In this case, there was a bottle of sweetened cranberry juice in the fridge.
These are rough estimates of what probably happened.
In mixing glass, no ice:
- 1-2 part gin
- 1 part freshly squeeze grapefruit
- 2-3 part sweetened cranberry juice (cold)
- Stir well
Pour above into cocktail glass:
- Add ½ - 1 oz tonic water
- Stir briefly
- Add lemon twist
- Serve with apology
While I was building this, I had an idea for a mango-mint drink. Something on the order of a mango mojito, the mojango. Experiment to come.
