This simple gin cocktail blends the slightly bitter and herbaceous notes of Cocchi Americano with tart grapefruit. Fresh thyme amplifies the aromatics, but dried thyme will also do the trick.
1½ oz. gin
1 oz. Cocchi Americano
1 oz. grapefruit juice
Tools: shaker, strainer
Garnish: grapefruit wedge and thyme sprig
Shake all of the ingredients together in a shaker with ice, then strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice.
