A sweet name for a tart cocktail - vodka, lime juice and grapefruit juice smoothed out with a little Triple Sec. I prefer Skyy vodka but use what suits your taste and budget.
- Fill an 8-ounce glass with ice and add grapefruit juice.
- In a cocktail shaker, mix vodka, lime juice and Triple Sec. Strain on top of ice and grapefruit juice.
- Stir gently.
- Sit back, relax and sip.
This was so refreshing on a warm summer's evening. My husband and I normally don't have mixed drinks, but the weather was so nice and we wanted something cold, citrus-y and refreshing to drink on the patio. This fit the bill. I added a sprig of fresh lavender to my drink and it really complimented it. It's tart but not bitter - just fantastic!
I just loved this drink! Nice and tart but very smooth and easy to drink. The grapefruit and lime flavors are terrific together! I made it first as specified, the second time I just shook everything in the cocktail shaker and it came out just as good. This is a great summertime drink that I will be making often - thanks for sharing!
My BF that likes sour drinks loved this one a lot. And even me. I was able to taste it 2-3 times LOL I used fresh lime juice. Thanks SusieQusie :) Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
