The Red Ruby cocktail combines gin, grapefruit juice, and honey syrup into a beautiful sparkling drink. Grapefruit juice gives the drink its deep red color while the dash of sea salt balances out the flavors.
July’s birthstone is the ruby, king of gems. It has been treasured for generations for its rich color and vitality. It’s tough, durable and rare, qualities you may also find in July babies.
Both the gem and this cocktail are deep red – the color of passion and love. Aptly so too, because this summer promises to be a season of love and affection as people reconnect with family, friends and loved ones.
The Ruby Red Cocktail makes the perfect drink for gatherings with friends or a backyard barbecue. You can also serve it to set the mood with a lover or even on a date night.
