Nantucket Cocktail

The Nantucket Cocktail is one of those classy alternatives to a frou frou drink. It’s a little bit sweet and fruity, but never in a million years would anyone begin to think of it as a candy drink.

This is one cocktail I find remarkably refreshing. The tartness of the white grapefruit and cranberry juices wakes up your taste buds before the brandy hits.
