A good friend on zaar thought it would be a great twist on my Vodka Water with Red Ruby Grapefruit Vodka instead of Mandarin.... then add simple syrup and some citrus..... Turns out It's delicious. Thanks "B" for the great idea ;) "Throw some slices of fruit in it add some ice, shake your booty and your good to go!"

- Vodka Water:.
- Place ice cubes in an empty pitcher.
- squeeze juice of the orange, lime and lemon over the ice. (I use my juicer - this gives you more citrus juice) cut peel into quarters and throw in the citrus -- It just gets better.

I'm so thrilled to be the first to rate this recipe! I love absolut ruby red grapefruit vodka, so I knew I was going to love this drink. Love the orange, lime, lemon combination. Be careful drinking these they tend to sneak up on you. I used a simiple syrup ratio of one cup sugar, one cup water and added one cup of simple syrup to the pitcher. Made this at my sisters appy night and was a *HUGE* hit. Thanks for sharing this recipe, one I know I will be making again.
