Grapefruit & Black Pepper Daisy

Bonanno Brothers Pizza in Lone Tree, Colo. was inspired by the oven that was shipped over from Florence; the restaurant pays homage to the Art Deco era train station in Florence, and its drinks are just as creative. The restaurant serves up daisies, their incredible and unique homemade margaritas. This Grapefruit & Black Pepper Daisy is made with house-made grapefruit sour and a peppercorn syrup. It was crafted by the restaurant's beverage director, Adam Hodak.

Grapefruit Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
