The San Antonio Cocktail Conference starts Thursday night with a party at the Majestic Theater. To get ready, shake up a little something new. The Big and Bright mixes gin with ginger liqueur, grapefruit and a touch of bright hot heat into one fizzy drink. Enjoy.
I had the No. 3 and a brank of ginger liqueur on hand, but I didn’t have grapefruit juice or Fire and Damnation bitters, so I used grapefruit bitters, upped the lime juice and added a hit of habanero hot sauce. They all worked together to make a really refreshing drink.
