A good name for a drink can do wonders for sales. If this had been called a Grapefruit Sour I’m sure that many of the people who try it would be put off. Thankfully, they aren’t and the drink itself is delicious. I include another version of it with twice the vodka and a dash of cherry liquor, which was the way our erstwhile barista Tallulah Rilen, who was always fond of revising the recipes, liked to drink hers.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
30ml clear vodka
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 egg white
45ml grapefruit juice
1 maraschino cherry, to serve

Sugar Syrup

Quantity Ingredient
caster sugar
water

Method

  1. First make a sugar syrup for the bar. Put 1 part water to 2 parts caster sugar by volume into a microwave-safe container, stir it very well, and nuke it for 5 minutes on high. Remove it (carefully, as it is very hot and sticky) and stir thoroughly again. Cook it for a further 2 minutes on high or until all of the sugar has dissolved. Remove it from the microwave and allow it to cool. When it is lukewarm, strain it through a fine strainer and put it into a plastic squeeze bottle for ease of use.
  2. To make the Spoilt Princess put the vodka, lemon juice, egg white, grapefruit juice and sugar syrup into a shaker and shake hard for 30 seconds to fluff the egg white. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry.
  3. To turn this drink into a Bad Girl For Love, double the amount of vodka and add a dash of maraschino liquor (the red syrup that comes with the cherries).
