Citrus and vodka are like peas and carrots. Except waaaaaay better because they’re alcoholic.

There are few things I like better than a vodka, soda and fresh lime juice, or fresh orange juice, or fresh lemon juice, or…. wait for it………. fresh grapefruit juice. Yessssssss.

And there we have the homemade grapefruit martini!

Homemade Grapefruit Martini

Homemade grapefruit martini

2 ounces vodka
1/2 grapefruit
1 cup ice

Cut grapefruit into wedges and squeeze juice into cocktail shaker. Add ice and vodka, shake and enjoy! Sometimes I add a little club soda or fresh orange juice on the top to make it even more festive.

I also love to put this in an icy Mason jar, and then add Pellegrino to make it a spritzer. Enjoy!
