Cheers | Frozen Negroni.

First, to all of you who've left comments on recent posts and haven't heard back from me - I apologize! Apparently, Blogger has stopped notifying me about comments. and ugh, I'm not sure how to fix this. Please know I appreciate all of you and I hope to get back to personal replies soon.

And now on to today's topic. In honor of the first weekend of summer, I have a frozen cocktail to share!

I started researching summer cocktails a few weeks ago and quickly found one to try first - my favorite Negroni, blended with fresh juice and crushed ice.

The first time through, I followed the recipe as written, including squeezing blood oranges and chilling the liquids prior to blending. It worked beautifully.

The second time through, I didn't have any more blood oranges, so I substituted ruby red grapefruit juice (not even fresh-squeezed) and didn't wait to chill. It worked beautifully. And for my taste, I actually liked the grapefruit better than the orange.

Frozen Negroni - makes 2 drinks
(inspired by Kitchn)

1 oz gin
1 oz Campari
1 oz red vermouth
3 oz ruby red grapefruit juice
1-1/2 cups coarsely crushed ice

Put the ice in the blender and add the rest of the ingredients. Blend until smooth.

Cheers!!

and have a wonderful long weekend. I'll see you back here Tuesday!

Stupid Blogger has disrupted my morning (but thanks for letting me know!), but I'm thinking a nice Frozen Negroni might help this afternoon. I'll probably think of it as a Negroni Slushie but I'm going to give it a try. Thanks! :-)

Looks good. I'd have to have the one made with oranges 'cause I can't have grapefruit...so, have one for me!
Cheers~

It does look good! And a pretty color, too! Maybe I can summon the cocktail fairy this weekend and give it a try. : )

Now that looks yummy! It's certainly getting hot enough to call for something frozen.
