Notes

You can squeeze your own grapefruit juice.
Lime juice can be bottled or fresh, and fresh is always best.
Vodka used can be plain or flavored as suggested.
A light and refreshing cocktail sure to be a hit at your next gathering.

ALCOHOL-FREE - MOCKTAIL VERSION

For an equally delicious alcohol-free version, replace the vodka and orange liquor with 1 cup
sparkling water and ¼ cup of fresh orange juice.
Then, pour all ingredients into a
pitcher filled with ice, rather than a cocktail shaker, to combine before
serving. 
My Pink Grapefruit Cups **
So when it's time to add in the juice, I do a few different things.
I take my grapefruit cups and I toss one into the blender. Then I use this for the drink.
My other little trick is I drain the juice from the grapefruit cup and I chunk up some of the pieces of grapefruit and toss those into my martini,
After all, it's some fruit intake, right? lol!
