Really Nice- I love the vodka/cran/grapefruit combos I didn't have any triple sec so I used a bit of cointreau I also shook it over ice and i served straight up ( ice cold of course!) Thanks Boomette for this great cocktail!

I really enjoyed this cocktail, as the description says "not too sweet", and though it was fairly strong, it wasn't overwhelming. I used Smirnoff, Cointreau, a squeeze of fresh grapefruit juice, 100% cranberry juice and after tasting it, also tried it with a few dashes of Scrappy's grapefruit bitters - it was delightful either way!

This was a fun fruity cocktail. However, I wasn't a fan of the triple sec. It tasted a little too artificial for me. Glad I tried it though. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Not bad. I had some ruby red grapefruits I needed to use, so I had fresh juice. Nice and refreshing. Thanx=)

Like other reviewers, I love cranberry and vodka drinks, and this one is no exception. Loved the mix of flavors with the addition of grapefruit juice. I made this for Holiday tag.

I love vodka and cranberry drinks and this one is a definite joy! The grapefruit juice mellows the sweetness and ups the tart factor really nicely. Great recipe Boomette! *Made for Bev Tag*

This is refreshing! For the 2nd round we cut the sweetness even more by using half cranberry juice and half soda water or just plain water. Prefered it that way. It's really good if you substitute the vodka for tequila!

This is a great mix, I really enjoyed this one, I used cointreau in place of triple sec, the juices really mellow out the strength of the vodka. Yummo, thanks Boomie!

I used a healthy dash of ruby red grapefruit juice and cranberry and I am sipping the last of it now. Nice and refreshing. I liked the hint of the triple sec. I think I'll go make another! Cheers Boomie!
