Olde Virden's Simple Syrup:
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
3/4 tsp of Olde Virden's Red Hot Sprinkle
4 oz. grapefruit juice (fresh squeezed is always best- about one grapefruit)
2 oz. vodka
1 oz. OV's simple syrup
Salty Spice Rub (mix course sea salt with a pinch of Olde Virden's)
Make your simple syrup by combining the sugar, water, and Olde Virden's in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Simmer until the sugar is dissolved and the Olde Virden's is blended. Place in container and cool in fridge. You will want the simple syrup to be completely cooled when added to drink.
Run a lime wedge around the rim of your glass and then dip the glass in the salty spice rub. In a shaker, combine ice, vodka, simple syrup, and grapefruit juice. Shake and serve. Enjoy the extra kick the Olde Virden's adds.
