Trompie Cocktail

Greg Cox


50ml vodka

200ml freshly squeezed grapefruit juice

150ml Appletiser

1 vanilla pod

1 sprig from a citrus tree (optional)



Add the vodka, grapefruit juice, Appletiser and ice to a large cocktail glass.

Split the vanilla pod lengthways, scrape the seeds from it and add both pod parts to the glass.

If available, use a small sprig taken from a citrus tree as a garnish.
