LSL {Foodie Friday} - Summertime Splash

My lovely friend Shea decided it would be fun to collaborate on this week's Foodie Friday, and I love a good collab, as you know, so I was on board before even knowing what it was about. Shea suggested trying to re-create a cocktail that Los Altos Grill serves that tastes like summertime. We decided that Tuesday of this week (that really felt like a Friday) we would get together, me being the willing participant, always down to help drink a cause. And, Shea was sweet enough to not only re-create this delicious drink, she then took all these lovely pictures. But don't worry I helped and I did what I do best, taste test the booze. And she's right, this drink has summer time written all over it.

Summertime Splash
{via- Shea's Kitchen}

2 oz Bombay Sapphire
1 oz St Germain (Elderflower Liqueur)
Juice from 1/2 a ruby red grapefruit
Splash of ginger ale

Mix all together with ice in a shaker, pour into a pretty glass, garnish with a grapefruit peel or cucumber slice, and sip

A BIG thanks to Shea for those beautiful pictures (It was hard to narrow them down to six!) and for sharing this drink that I'll be sure to make for myself again (and again). Also, while I'm at it, check out her website, blog and FB page too. She's got some pretty amazing skills!

Bon Appetit and Happy Weekend!
