  • 1 1/2 oz amaro (I used a local one from Margerum, going to try others and report back!)
  • 1 1/2 oz fresh grapefruit juice
  • 3/4 oz vodka
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • 1 dash orange bitters


  • Add all ingredients to a shaker. Add ice. Shake fully, 15 - 20 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with a twist of grapefruit and enjoy!
    NB: My grapefruit was pretty sweet, if you have on that is more bitter you may need a touch of simple syrup to balance this cocktail but it also depends on your amaro and how you like it!


This amaro and grapefruit cocktail is so quick and so easy with delightful fall flavoring, definitely going to bring this to Thanksgiving this year! It also happens to be perfect for batches so if you're looking for a great option for your fall or winter gathering, look no more!
