Relatively Guilt-free Grapefruit Cocktail

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

  3. In each glass, pour 1 1/4 ounce (or free pour however much you want) of grapefruit vodka.
