Self – indulgence

Tessy, gin based cocktail with grapefruit juice and CampariThe best has been saved for last. I always enjoy all of these five cocktails; they make scrumptious treats. Yet, the citrus flavours mixed with the distinctive herbaceous quality of Campari stand out.

The Epilogue to my quest

Certainly the Pineapple Tuesday was delicious. However, it occurred to me that I would prefer a cocktail with a sharper taste. The solution proved to be simple. We swapped around the grapefruit and pineapple juice. That did it: crisp, light, pretty. Just what I was searching for.

Farewell until the next recipe

For lack of a better name, we simply refer to this as a Tessy. Like Gin and Tonic it is refreshing, but you’ll find this alternative doesn’t leave a sticky after taste. Give it a try. See what you think.
