The smoky flavour of grilled grapefruit as well as its natural tartness adds a twist to the classic gin and tonic.
Build a medium-heat fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to medium. Alternatively, you can heat a cast-iron grill pan over medium-high heat.
Place grapefruit on grill and cook, turning once, until lightly charred (do this for about 1 minute).
Remove from heat and set aside.
Add gin and grapefruit juice to an ice-filled rocks glass.
Top with tonic and soda, and garnish with grilled grapefruit slice sprinkled with sea salt.
2 oz. tonic
