I think most people are grapefruit lovers or haters. I rarely hear people say, “Oh I kind of like grapefruit…” I am a lover. I eat one most days for breakfast, and grapefruit juice is my favorite of all fruit juices. Red grapefruit, that is. My husband is not a grapefruit fan, (he has a thing about pulp) but we both like greyhounds.

from: Vintage Cocktails

1 ½ ounces vodka
2 ½ ounces red grapefruit juice (100% natural if possible)

Stir together and pour into a rocks glass filled with ice.

My variation. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, shake the vodka, grapefruit juice, ¼ tsp ground ginger (the wet, refrigerated kind), and simple syrup to taste. Pour into rocks glass.

To make this drink a Salty Dog- moisten & salt the rim of the glass.
