It’s Friday: Make Happy Hour at Home

by Mike Hunter

The social mingling part of Happy Hour is now being enjoyed virtually.

For the drinks, of course, there is no virtual option. Two businesses have stepped into the breach here, and are sharing their recipes.

How to Mix the Tommy Bahama Grapefruit Basil Martini

The Martini is a classic and in the hands of Tommy Bahama, it gets an island twist. The Grapefruit Basil Martini is crisp, bright and refreshing. Best of all, it requires only a few key ingredients that are easily accessible and can have you shaking them all up like a master mixologist in no time. Simply muddle simple syrup and one basil leaf in a shaker. Add ice, vodka and grapefruit juice then shake. Pour into a Martini glass, garnish with a basil leaf and voila!
