Grapefruit juice is an unsung hero of the cocktail world. When used properly, it enhances and excites your alcohol canvas. The Ruby Red Vodka Martini makes a great hot-day refreshment or even a brunch libation. It's fast, flexible and easy. What more could you ask for, except maybe another? And another...
1 ounce of vodka
1 ounce of triple sec
2 ounces of ruby red grapefruit juice
Some coarse granulated sugar
Wet the martini glass rim with grapefruit juice and coat with sugar.
Combine the vodka, triple sec & grapefruit juice in a shaker with ice.
Shake and strain (if we weren't talking about the cocktail, we'd suggest you consult your doctor)
Enjoy the (grape)fruits of your labor!
