I first came up with this cocktail a few years ago when I threw a book-themed baby shower and wanted to do a literary themed drink. I sent some friends the drink concept and one brilliantly came up with the name F. Scott Spritzgerald - which perfectly sums up the super fresh, bubbly drink with a Gatsby nod!
I combined all my favorite drink ingredients - gin, grapefruit juice, St-Germain and some sprtiz! The cucumber garnish at the end adds even more brightness to the drink. If you wanted to make it stronger, and a less daytime, you can replace the seltzer with Champagne or Cava, which we did at our wedding. You could say it's become my signature cocktail over the years.
So grab a copy of The Great Gatsby, enjoy the last weekend of warm weather and pour yourself an F. Scott Spritzgerald. Cheers!
