“The Ruby is a fruit-centric drink,” says bartender Tony Abou-Ganim. “I use a vodka with a good structure, rich mouthfeel and diverse fruit flavors. A potato-based vodka is ideal to help soften and moderate the drink’s bitter and floral elements.”


  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1/2 ounce Aperol
  • 3/4 ounce St-Germain elderflower liqueur
  • 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice
  • 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp egg white
  • Garnish: expressed grapefruit twist


  1. Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and dry-shake (without ice).

  2. Add ice and shake again until well-chilled.

  3. Strain into a chilled coupe glass.

  4. Express a grapefruit twist over the top and discard.
