Ruby’s Rodeo from HonkyTonk Saloon

HonkyTonk Saloon Manager Shelly Shattuck tapped into her Cove Oyster Bar & Grille bar manager past, creativity, and love of all things country to come up with this drink as part of a sponsorship campaign with Belle Isle Moonshine and their Sweet Heat Lollipop cocktail garnishes.

“We wanted to give it a country, down-home feel, so that’s where we used Ruby, which is a country girl kind of name. And, here at HonkyTonk we have that Western rodeo theme going on, so hence the name Ruby’s Rodeo. It’s really, really good and both crisp and refreshing. Anyone who loves grapefruit is going to love it and the lollipop adds a nice little spice,” says Shattuck of her libation creation.

To prepare, put the moonshine in a 6-ounce glass. Squeeze in the fresh lemon and orange juices. Top off with Triple Sec and soda water. Serve over ice with a Belle Isle Sweet Heat Lollipop.
