Savor the last days of summer and sail away into cocktail heaven with this refreshing tipple created by Alexandra Hamilton, owner of Willow & Ivy, a boutique event planning and design studio based in Seattle. “The fresh grapefruit and lime juices bring a light, summery note, while the ginger-rosemary simple syrup adds an earthy, tempered finish,” Alexandra says. “Not only is this cocktail delicious, but its pretty ombré appearance makes it perfect for entertaining guests.”
Captured by photographer Tawni Eakman, Alexandra’s cocktail stylings reveal her love of vibrant colors, give a nod to the area’s maritime heritage, and showcase why this sweetly layered sip would be the star of any estival get-together.
♦ 2 cups of pink grapefruit juice
♦ 1 cup of lime juice
♦ 1 cup of ginger-rosemary syrup
♦ 6 ounces of white rum
♦ Citrus slices and rosemary sprigs for garnishing
To achieve a layered ombré effect, pour the juice first, followed by the simple syrup. Top off with white rum! Yum!
