Pink Victrola

The Pink Victrola is a delicious, if a tad girly, drink that we found on the Hendrick’s Gin website. While it may cost more than you’re used to paying for gin, Hendrick’s unique, mild, floral flavor makes it perhaps the only gin that can make the Pink Victrola really sing. 

1 1/2 parts  Hendrick’s Gin

1 1/2 parts  grapefruit juice

1/2 part  lemon juice

1/2 part  simple syrup

1 bar spoon of grenadine

Fill a shaker half full with ice and add all ingredients. Shake well. Strain into a cocktails glass and garnish with a twist of grapefruit (or lemon, as seen here).

The balance of flavors in this drink is absolutely tremendous. Any other gin would overpower the drink with juniper flavor, but Hendrick’s cucumber and rose flavors make for a wonderfully complex, but not understated cocktail.
