Yes, it tastes just as good as it looks! The drink of the summer has been the above cocktail, which has gone by a few names since its conception. My parents introduced me (and I believe most of Northeast Harbor) to this vodka drink that hails from Texas. One of it’s first names was The Steady Eddy, coined by my mom and her golf friends when they did a women’s Sip and Chip golf lesson one evening. When we super charged it with a little St. Germain we joked that it was the Fast Eddy, and now I am calling it the Ruby Rose. I promise its not because I watched too many Orange is the New Black episodes. If you have never had Deep Eddy’s Ruby Red Vodka, you are welcome, because it is delicious! Even with just soda water this vodka shines!
IngredientsDeep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur Lime Sparkling Water Fresh Squeezed Grapefruit Juice, optional
To be honest, I have never measured out the proportions and I tend to change it depending on my mood. Am I looking for a more tart taste VS something a litter sweeter? If you have a grapefruit lying around, I highly recommend adding in some fresh grapefruit juice! The real star is the Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka, it’s dangerously delicious!
I start by pouring some Deep Eddy Vodka, then add a splash of Elder Flower Liqueur (where you get some sweetness), a squeeze of lime and some grapefruit juice and then top with club soda! So simple, so good. Above, I used lime sparkling soda but regular works just as well. I think this drink you can play around with the amounts to find what your perfect combination is.
