THE RECIPE FOR A HAPPY
HOME BAR
Mark Calhoon still has his two
fingers of Scotch, most notably
with his long-time band mates in
The Windbags, a four-man acoustic
group. " Scotch is band juice, " Mark
says. " We have band practice-out
comes the Scotch. "
Reflecting on having a home bar,
Kevin Barger says, " It provides a
conversation and gathering space
that is warm, inviting and friendly. "
And Brenda Barnes shares one
of her favorite recipes, Grapefruit
Crush.
GRAPEFRUIT CRUSH
This cocktail combines refreshing with a touch of tart. It uses Brenda's favorite tool
- a juicer - plus a shaker. Serves two.
▷ ¼ CUP DEEP EDDY RUBY RED GRAPEFRUIT VODKA
▷ 3 TABLESPOONS TRIPLE SEC
▷ ¾ CUP FRESH-SQUEEZED RED GRAPEFRUIT JUICE
▷ 3-4 OZ. LEMON-LIME SODA
▷ GRAPEFRUIT SLICE FOR GARNISH
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add grapefruit vodka, triple sec and grapefruit
juice. Shake to blend, fill two glasses with ice and pour equal amount into each
glass. Top each with a splash (or more to your liking) of any lemon-lime soda.
Garnish with a grapefruit wedge.
