COCKTAILS AT SIX: THE SALTED TARRAGON GREYHOUND

There's something about warm summer nights and dark summer tans that kick up the sex appeal a notch... and I think it's about time we introduced a cocktail to suit the season! The equivalent of a white hot dress and stained red lips, I think this refreshing drink with a tart little bite to match is just the thing...

The Salted Tarragon Greyhound:

*Grapefruit tarragon infused vodka
*Freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice, strained of pulp and seeds
*Flaky sea salt or kosher salt
*Agave nectar
*Ruby red grapefruit wedges, for garnish

Fill a short glass with ice and add one part vodka, two parts freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Transfer to a cocktail shaker and add a pinch of sea salt, and agave nectar to taste. Shake, pour, and garnish with a fresh wedge of ruby red grapefruit for the finishing touch!
