What happens when you run out of ice and your guests are asking for more alcohol? You aim for whatever you got refridgerated. In this case, there was a bottle of sweetened cranberry juice in the fridge.

These are rough estimates of what probably happened.

In mixing glass, no ice:

  • 1-2 part gin
  • 1 part freshly squeeze grapefruit
  • 2-3 part sweetened cranberry juice (cold)
  • Stir well.

Pour above into cocktail glass:

  • Add 1/2 - 1 oz tonic water.
  • Stir briefly.
  • Add lemon twist.
  • Serve with apology.

While I was building this, I had an idea for a mango-mint drink. Something on the order of a mango mojito, the mojango. Experiment to come.
