Pink Grapefruit Martini

National Grapefruit month!

I remember eating grapefruit halves covered with sugar as a child. It was a great breakfast! Pink grapefruit juice was also a breakfast staple for me as well.

I think I ate grapefruit until I was in medical school. Unfortunately, I started taking medications that the fruit would interfere with. It’s been years and I still miss the tart and slightly sweet taste of grapefruit juice.

So while I can’t actually enjoy this particular drink, I have it on good authority that this grapefruit martini is amazing!

Try it and let me know — I will live vicariously through you!

This light and refreshing cocktail is sure to be a hit at your next gathering. For an equally delicious alcohol-free version, replace the vodka and orange liquor with 1 cup sparkling water and ¼ cup fresh orange juice. Then, pour all ingredients into a pitcher filled with ice, rather than a cocktail shaker, to combine before serving.
