Jess Cooks with Trisha’s Southern Kitchen: Ginger Grapefruit Fizz Cocktail [VIDEO]

I may have gotten a little behind on my posts about Trisha’s Southern Kitchen but now I’m started, I’m ready to go! It may only be my second one but I’m already ready for a drink.

Trisha Yearwood has a show on the Food Network called Trisha’s Southern Kitchen and I’m obsesssed. I just think Trisha Yearwood seems like the sweetest person so when I met her at the Garth Brooks/Trisha Yearwood concert at the Times Union Center in March I was so happy to find out that she was. I decided to take my love for food (and my love for Trisha) and cook some of her food.

This week’s episode was Trisha’s Day Off where she made Praline Cheesecake Bars, Jambalaya and Rice, and what I’ll be conquering this week, the Ginger Grapefruit Fizz Cocktail. Now, I’m not a chef & I’m not anywhere close to a bartender but that’s what makes this series fun. I love to cook so if I can take these recipes and put something edible together, so can you! Drink responsibly & legally. If you don’t partake in alcohol, I would just add more ginger ale. Can’t go wrong with that!

Preheat the broiler.

Remove some of the grapefruit peel for a twist garnish, then cut the grapefruit in half. Place the grapefruit halves on a baking sheet flesh-side up and sprinkle the sugar evenly over the tops. Place under the broiler until the sugar is caramelized, about 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, fill a highball glass with ice and add the vodka. Remove the toasty grapefruit and squeeze the juice into the glass. Top with the ginger ale and garnish with the grapefruit twist.
