"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!"
"I really enjoyed this drink. I used fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. The end result was very tasty. Thanks for posting."
"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!"
"Very refreshing! My husband is the vodka drinker in this family and I know he will enjoy this one. I made as directed, subbing Absolut Vodka for the Stolichnaya. The splash of grapefruit juice brings it all together. Thank you, Boomette1!"
"This is a great cocktail!! Thought I had some grapefruit juice... but didn't - so only used cranberry juice - :yummy: Thanks Boomette! :)"
"This was such a refreshing drink after a long day of work - even though it was cold out. I had it over ice in a tall glass, and it went down TOO fast...."
"DH made this drink, using all cranberry juice, I didn't have any grapefruit juice to add in, great taste, served over lots of ice, I would suggest to use only unsweetened cranberry juice for this... thanks for sharing Boomette...Kitten:)"
"This was good but a little bitter so I added some club soda and Splenda. Made for the Went to the market game."
"PERFECT!!!! Just tagged this recipe and just in the nick of time too! I was low on cranberry juice and wondered "What was I gonna do" for my happy hour cosmo! Instead of triple sec I used Grand Marnier (another orange liquor)! VERY GOOD! Thanks Boomette for another choice!"
"Yummy, light low alcohol cocktail! I love the dash of grapefruit juice. It really gives it a nice subtle kick. Thanks Boomette!"
"Delicious, smooth, and citrusy light! I loved this one to top my evening off with!! Thanks for another FAB cocktail, Boomie! Into the Party cocktails book it goes!!"
