NYE G&G Cocktail

Thirsty Thursday

It’s time for the excitement of getting ready for a New Year’s Eve party!  We have the privilege of hosting friends and neighbors for a family friendly party.  We have fun games and drinks for all ages.

Last year, I concocted a cheery and colorful drink that was a great addition to the adult beverage options.  It’s got Gin and fresh grapefruit juice.  I call it the NYE G&G.

It’s a fun and simple drink to make, so I made up a festive recipe just for New Year’s Eve so friends could make their own drink (and also be in charge of their own pours). [Recipe Below]


I also created a station where all the ingredients and tools were available to create the drinks.

What You Need:

  • Muddler
  • Pomegranate juice
  • Gin
  • Shaker
  • Grapefruit
  • Grapefruit Soda (like Hansen’s)
  • Pomegranate Seeds

Cheers Everyone!
