Especially good on a hot summers evening, we love this simple martini to sip on. Pink grapefruit works best, and try to find a smooth, aged tequila and if possible, chill your martini glasses in the freezer for a frosty, smooth treat!

Hey hey! This is one amazing little libation of love! I have been suffering with a stupid winter cold that has gone from a head cold to a chest cold and nothing will 'cut the crud' and make me stop coughing. This did the trick! The citrus of the grapefruit was the burst of liquid vitamin C I needed and the tequila broke through the coughing fits and settled my chest! I CAN BREATHE! and not only that... I can taste! This is so YUMMY! I used a Rio Red Texas Grapefruit that I juiced in my juicer and measured out the prescribed ounce. Mixed with some Herradura Reposado Tequila that I have been squirreling away in the back of the liquor cabinet! To get the same pretty red color I had to add more than a healthy splash of grenadine. I had another and I think I like this with less grenadine because it is more tart and tangy. Equally good both ways! Leslie my dear gf, you are a true dearheart for posting this amazing recipe! Thank you!

I made this drink as written. It was a little too strong for me. I added a little bit more of the grapefruit to it. I used bottled juice Fresh grapefruit is a little too pricey. for me. It's a good drink if you like them strong. Thank you for sharing your recipe. This made for ZWT 4 South and Central America. and the Cafe ZMAkk Gypsies.
