I was first introduced to this refreshing cocktail by my friend Teri Henry. She taught me the trick to making this the best is with fresh grapefruit. Now, grapefruit is one of my favorite juices, love the bitterness so this easily became one of my favorite cocktails.
Free grapefruit makes all the difference so if possible, always use fresh grapefruit juice.
There are a couple of different versions of this cocktail. If you are not into sweet drinks, then just combine the vodka, grapefruit juice and some rosemary. If you do not like the bitterness of grapefruit juice then add some simple syrup to this cocktail, but not too much.
Combine into a cocktail shaker
2 ounces of vodka
5 to 6 ounces of grapefruit juice
Add the vodka and grapefruit juice to a cocktail shaker with ice, I add rosemary to this to give it a bit of rosemary taste. Pour into glass, add rosemary for garnish.
I just love this cocktail, so refreshing and delicious. Thanks Terri!
