Turtle Dove Cocktail: A Whiskey Lover's Delight
Inspired by the Paloma, which means dove in Spanish, I named this whiskey/grapefruit combination after a dove found in Kentucky: the turtle dove. The bright and slightly bitter grapefruit juice is perfect with the slightly sweet and smokey whiskey.
2 ounces whiskey
1 ounce grapefruit juice
1 teaspoon simple syrup
dash of vanilla extract
Combine all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Top with lots of ice, pop on the lid, and shake vigorously for 15 seconds. Strain into a glass and garnish with a grapefruit peel.
