Pamplemousse – A Fabulous Brunch Cocktail Recipe


One sip of this drink and I immediately wanted to be having a dayyyy outside on the town with the ladies. Well…so long as that “dayyy” also includes a massive eggs benedict. πŸ˜‹πŸ³πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ++🍹🍹🍹

The Pamplemousse is a pretty popular cocktail so there are lots of recipes out there online but personally, I wanted to make it a bit more wintery; meaning less fruity-tuity and more earthy-citrus, so I chose St. George’s Terroir Gin as the base spirit.πŸ’₯ BAM (good call 😏).

I always speak about my need for “high ROI” cocktails aka zero prep time and high ABV, and my Pamplemousse doesn’t fall short. HA – literally 3 (but really 2) steps, this cocktail couldn’t get any easier.Β πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Ingredients (makes 1):

1 1/2 ozΒ St. George’s Terroir Gin
1Β oz St. Germain (elderflower liqueur)
1Β oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice (fresh is really best, 1 grapefruit will be enough)
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juiceΒ πŸ‹
Basil leaf 🌿


  1. Squeeze the grapefruit and lemon into separate glasses to have your fresh juice ready and easy to measure.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the ingredients except the garnish and shake well. Pour through a strainer into a chilled coupe
  3. Garnish with the basil leaf.
    ✨ PRO TIP:Β Put a basil leaf between your hands and smackΒ your hands together to release even more of the smell before garnishingΒ the cocktail, maximizing the flavor experience for the drinker (Most do this with mint but why the hellΒ do it with basil too?! πŸ€”πŸŒΏ)

Now, whether your drinking and watching the Super Bowl today or you’re avoiding that scene and taking advantage of the no brunch lines outdoors (πŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ™‹) – you’re gunna wanna start your day with this deliciousssss “brunch appropriate” Pamplemousse cocktail recipe.Β πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Happy Sippin’ Super Bowl Sunday!Β πŸ˜„πŸΈπŸˆπŸ»
