Grapefruit & Mint Collins – My Signature Summer Cocktail

Grapefruit + Mint Collins - My Signature Summer Cocktail - Busy & Chic

Running a business can be stressful, and sometimes, the best solution is to wind down with a happy hour in your own home. One of my favorite things to do when feeling stressed, is to experiment with cocktails. Sometimes, a glass of red wine, after launching a client project, just isn’t enough. I need something fun, light, and spiritual.

Discovering your signature cocktail is a rite of passage as a woman. It’s like figuring out how to dress for your body or finding your perfect scent. Once you find a cocktail that’s your go to, all is right after a hard week.

My signature drink is a Tom Collins. It’s light, airy, and when made right, a sublime mix of sweet and sour. Literal perfection. In the summer, I like to add a little sass to my Collins. My go to addons are grapefruit and mint. It’s undeniably delicious! And it makes you feel like you’re literally drinking summer fun.
