Grapefruit Ginger Bourbon Sour

This recipe was so delicious. The tart grapefruit with the sweet bourbon was perfect and the homemade ginger syrup (super easy, don’t be scared!) made it even better.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 3-inch piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups bourbon


  1. Heat sugar, water, and ginger over low heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let steep for 30 minutes. Remove ginger and discard.
  2. Combine ginger syrup, grapefruit juice, and lime juice.
  3. Fill 6 glasses with ice. Add 1/3 cup bourbon and 1/2 cup juice mixture to each glass. Serve immediately.
