Loved this!!!! ALOT!! I had bought the Ruby Red Absolut and had not been creative enough in how to use it. When I saw this recipe I knew it would be great! I used Ruby Red grapefruit juice which is a little sweeter than pink grapefruit juice and used only about 1/8 cup lemon juice. This makes enough for two drinks for me, which was no problem, at all!! BK Thanks for a wonderful libation!!!!

This is delicious. We did it 2 times in 2 days :P I used Absolut Vodka. It's a drink that is a bit sour. Thanks Baby Kato :)
