This pink gem only looks too sweet, pink and fru fru.  There is a hint of tartness in the finish with a wee bit of grapefruit quality feel to the flavor.  Better yet, this cocktail is an easy build.  It also plays well with pink themed cocktails for those interested in pairing cocktails with Breast Cancer Awareness during October or any time of year. Now that’s something worth partying about.
