Author Notes: In my experience, sitting in a bathing suit makes a person eat and drink lighter...I bought grapefruit vodka on a whim and rediscovered Fresca which I hadn't had in years. Grapefruit juice ice cubes are great because as they melt in the oppressive Texas heat your cocktail doesn't get watered down.nannydeb

Serves 2

  • 12 ounces freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 2 1/2 ounces grapefruit vodka
  • 1 can Fresca soft drink
  • 1 BFF to sip a cocktail with
  1. Pour the freshly squeezed grapefruit juice into an empty ice tray and freeze.
  2. Later that day (no judgement if you're drinking in the morning), crack the grapefruit ice into two 8 ounce glasses.
  3. In each glass, pour 1 1/4 ounce (or free pour however much you want) of grapefruit vodka.
  4. Top with Fresca and serve.

Nannydeb -- would you consider muddling a wedge of fresh grapefruit with some basil between step 1 and step 2l? I had something similar in Las Vegas and it was a phenomenal combination. Love the ice cube idea! Good luck on the contest.

Great name, nannydeb! My friends & I use to make this drink, often, using regular Vodka, not sure there was a grapefruit flavored one back then, we always called it our "diet" drink...Fresca was the key ingredient for that. :)

When I saw this posted, my first thought was, "Please, please have Fresca in it!". I would run the grapefruit cubes thru the blender though. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
