It’s Hump Day Happy Hour time…time for a refreshing Grapefruit Martini!
I had two lonely pink grapefruits sitting in my fruit bowl for awhile and I never quite decided what to do with them. Well, it was happy hour time, and I had a couple friends over, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try out a new martini. I had scribbled down a recipe that sounded delicious from Liv Life’s blog that I came across earlier in the week and now was the perfect time to give it a try. Boy am I glad I did! This Grapefruit Martini is quite refreshing…and not too sweet. If you prefer a little more sweetness to your flavored martinis, just add a splash of simple syrup. I tried it with and without a splash and I liked it best with a little simple syrup. One friend preferred it without. So it’s really just a matter of personal preferences, and the sweetness of your grapefruit.
- 1½ oz. Vodka
- ½ oz. Limoncello
- 2 oz. fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice
- ½ oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
- Optional: splash of simple syrup
- Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass and enjoy!
