Pepper Blossom Cocktail ~ Citrus and Jalapeño

  • Author: RebeccaBlackwell
  • Yield: 1 drink


Gin, St. Germain, grapefruit juice, sliced Jalapeño, and fresh basil come together for a deliciously balanced and refreshing blend of spicy, sweet, and sour.


  • 2 oz gin
  • 3 or 4 slices jalapeño, seeds removed
  • 4 or 5 large basil leaves
  • 1 oz St Germain
  • 2 oz grapefruit juice
  • Club soda (optional)


  1. Add the gin, jalapeño slices, and basil leaves to a liquid measuring cup and muddle a bit to release the flavor of the jalapeño and basil. Let sit for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Wet the rim of a glass with grapefruit juice and coat with sugar (optional). Fill with ice.
  3. Strain the gin into a cocktail shaker and add the St Germain and grapefruit juice. Stir or shake to combine and pour into the ice-filled glass.
  4. Top off with a bit of club soda (optional).
