“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.”

Ingredients

  • 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: grapefruit twist oil

Steps

  1. Add all of the ingredients in a mixing glass, and shake with ice until well-mixed and the egg white is emulsified.

  2. Strain into a chilled coupe, and express a grapefruit twist over the top.
