Pink Grapefruit Cocktail: Vodka Martini
When you want a light and refreshing citrus cocktail that is pretty and tasty, sip a pretty in pink grapefruit martini.
The adult beverage is a real treat, since it is a lovely blend of fresh flavors.
This citrus cocktail is simple to make, so you can easily make it without much effort, even if you are not an expert mixologist.
With some recipes, it is ok to cut corners with the ingredients. When you make this pink grapefruit cocktail, I recommend using high quality ingredients for the best results.
If you have access to fresh fruit, its best to make your own juice for the cocktail.
Otherwise, choose a good commercial brand that is pure juice, not a cocktail with other additives.
The citrus really shines, when you make this cocktail with fresh juice.
It is a wonderful, balanced mix that is a treat from your first sip to the last.
What If I Don’t Have A Cocktail Shaker?
A cocktail shaker is nice to have as part of your home bar supplies.
However, it isn’t absolutely necessary.
An easy home bartender hack is to use a quart mason jar with a tight fitting lid instead of a cocktail shaker.
It may not look as professional, but your beverage will still be chilled and tasty.
What If I Don’t Have a Cocktail Jigger?
A jigger makes it easy to quickly measure your cocktail ingredients that are typically measured by the ounce.
If you don’t have one, you can use a regular measuring cup as long as it also has markings for ounces.
Another option is to measure with a tablespoon.
One ounce is equivalent to 2 tablespoons, so it is easy to do the math for the recipe.
The recipe below serves 4, but you can cut it in half if you only need two martinis.
You can enjoy this cocktail any time you choose, but I prefer a pretty in pink martini with brunch.
Of course, drink responsibly!
