Directions

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the sage leaves and grapefruit segment with the lime juice. Add the Italian aperitifs and Simple Syrup. Fill the shaker with ice cubes, top the shaker, create a seal and shake vigorously. Remove the top and add the beer. Strain into a double old-fashioned glass and garnish with the grapefruit wedge.

This recipe was provided by restaurant professionals and may have been scaled down from a bulk recipe provided by a restaurant. The Food Network Kitchens chefs have not tested this recipe, in the proportions indicated, and therefore, we cannot make any representation as to the results.

    I did not stick exactly to the recipe, but I thought this was a delicious and refreshing drink. Anytime you can combine alcohol with vitamin C, it's a good thing. And the simple syrup takes the edge off the bitterness. I added more grapefruit, lime juice and beer, than what was called for in the recipe. My husband and I enjoyed it.
