Drink Recipe – Park Avenue Cocktail

Fall in any house with small children is germ season, with them going back to school and daycare and everything. So the Fall of 2012 was one cold after another for me! So I was sure to get my vitamins with fresh citrus… and liquor!

I found a drink recipe that fit the bill posted on New Amsterdam’s Facebook page, and I actually found it on their website here! I made this drink on October 4, 2012.


Park Avenue


2 ounces vodka (or gin)

2 ounces fresh ruby red grapefruit juice

1 ounce triple sec

1/2 lime squeezed


Combine all ingredients in a shaker; add ice and shake vigorously for about 6 seconds. Serve in a chilled martini glass and garnish with a wedge of lime.


Citrusy and delicious! Would make again. Cheers!
