Bruleed Grapefruit & Gin Cocktail with Thyme

April 24, 2015


I’ve had this gorgeous cocktail from Waiting on Martha pinned on my Pintrest board for years but have yet to getting around to making it.  But now that I’ve been in a “grapefruit for breakfast” kick, I had a couple extras lying around and decided to (finally) whip this up!



Bruleed Grapefruit & Gin Cocktail

recipe via Waiting on Martha

  • 2 grapefruits, halved
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 oz gin
  • 4 oz bruleed grapefruit juice (1 large grapefruit = 4 oz of juice)
  • 1 oz club soda
  • spritz of lime juice
  • sprig of thyme
  1. Place grapefruit halves (fruit side up) on a cookie sheet.
  2. Sprinkle with sugars (I eye balled this, sprinkling closer to a couple teaspoon of sugar on each rather than a tablespoon).
  3. Broil in oven for about 10 minutes or until the sugar begins to caramelize.
  4. Remove from oven and let cool.
  5. Combine ice, gin and grapefruit juice and stir until cold.
  6. Strain into a glass and top with club soda, spritz of lime and spring of thyme.

* this could also be great over ice!
