Palm Beach Cocktail

Like the Miami Beach Cocktail, Palm Beach has a healthy dose of grapefruit juice. This is a tart drink that the dash of sweet vermouth is intended to mitigate. It doesn't do it very well, but you get the sense you are drinking a grapefruit Martini with very little alcohol. In reality, the gin sneaks up on you, especially if you are drinking out in the sun. Better take this one back into the beach cabana for some shade.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1/2 tsp. sweet vermouth
  • 2 oz. grapefruit juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
