Vodka is the traditional spirit for this bright, briny cooler, but as Chad Phillips, the bartender at Miami's Social Club showed us, gin adds a wonderful, aromatic dimension. This recipe first appeared in our March 2014 issue with the story Winter's Brightest Jewel.
- 1 tbsp. kosher salt
- 1 tsp. grated white grapefruit zest
- 2 oz. fresh white grapefruit juice
- 2 oz. gin or vodka
- 1 (2"-wide) strip grapefruit peel
