Grapefruit Fizzy

Just a short cocktail post before I retire to the couch where I will catch up on some much needed reality TV (I love money 4, really!?)….well we all have our vices. Worked 10 hours and then spent another one and a half at Costco, me hell…..needless to say I’ll be staying home making cocktails this weekend because I spent all of our money at Costco tonight!

Grapefruit juice is my tart treasure. I talk about it all day long telling my patients not to drink it since it is a source of many drug interactions….but secretly I love it! This drink takes the edge off of the tart juice and makes it sippable for all palates!

Here’s the ingredients:

2 oz vodka (the good stuff…..it’s been a long day)

1oz simple syrup

2oz grapefruit juice

2oz sparkling soda

2 lime wedges

As you can see in this picture my Stoli is running a bit low, so if you’re coming to my birthday this weekend you know what you could get me 🙂

Toss in the ingredients and squeeze lime wedges in for a hint of lime! That’s all folks!

Perfectly Pink!

There we go! A short and sweet week night beverage to quench your thirst as you watch your guilty pleasure on the tube tonight!

At least I have these little guys to ease my pain after a hard day:

the boys after a long hard day!

    I love grapefruit cocktails!! We are doing a signature drink of grapefruit and champagne with sugar on the rim and a rosemary. It looks pretty… I should def check to see how it tastes!!

    I am always looking for new pretty pink cocktails for my wedding… Thanks for the great post!

    Happy planning!

    • I want that drink NOW! Champagne is my fave and anything with sugar on the rim is usually a winner. There’s a really good cocktail called “Wedding Cake” that is also pink…..it has vodka, pineapple juice, and cranberry in it, I’ll probably post it later this week!

    That drink looks refreshing and delicious–I love vodka with grapefruit juice! My old roommate used to mix these two with pomegranite juice and call it something silly like a bloody corpse, but it was amazing. And your babies are adorable!
