Grapefruit Lime Spritzers

Lime Grapefruit Spritzer

Oh hey there. How has your week been? If the answer is good, bad or ugly, I bet you’d still take a drink, no? If so, you’re in the right place. John makes a great bartender.

Stolichnaya Vodka

I have just the cocktail for you. It’s one that John made me a few weeks back on a random Saturday afternoon at the request of  “something grapefruity and lime-ish,” and I’ve been pining after it ever since. Freshly squeezed grapefruit and lime juice, two types of booze, and a touch of tonic water for a bubbly effect. Mmm, bubbles.

Simple cocktail perfection is what I like to call it. Or, you could call it a grapefruit lime spritzer. Your call. The grapefruit adds plenty of sweetness while the tart lime offsets it perfectly, and I don’t say that loosely. PER-FECT-LY. The booze doesn’t hurt either. Just sayin’.

Magazine reading, TV watching, dinner party, evening in for one (or two). These are are just a few occasions this drink would be perfect for. Personally, I preferred the magazine reading, but do what you will. I won’t judge.

Grapefruit Lime Spritzers!! So simple and the best cocktail I've ever had!

Recipe type: Beverage
Serves: 2
  • 1 large grapefruit, juiced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 3 ounces (6 Tbsp) vodka
  • 1.5 ounces (3 Tbsp) triple sec
  • 1/2 cup tonic water
  • 6-8 ice cubes
  1. Add grapefruit juice, lime juice, vodka, triple sec and 6-8 ice cubes to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously to combine.
  2. Add ice to two serving glasses and then add a Tablespoon or two of tonic water, so the alcohol doesn't settle at the bottom.
  3. Next, pour the cocktail mixture evenly into the two glasses, leaving a little room on top for more tonic water. Top off with tonic and garnish with fresh slices of grapefruit and lime. Serve immediately. Yum.

    Love how everyone posted that this beverage “sounds” and “looks” amazing. I tried it and it is. Was our go to holiday beverage this year for Christmas and New Years in Mozambique.
