Does it keep? Best when fresh.


  • 1 large grapefruit (juiced // 1 large yields ~1 cup)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 3 ounces vodka (3 ounces = 6 Tbsp)
  • 1 1/2 ounces triple sec (1 1/2 ounces = 3 Tbsp)
  • 1/2 cup tonic water
  • 6-8 ice cubes (plus more for serving)


  1. Add grapefruit juice, lime juice, vodka, triple sec, and ice cubes to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously to combine.

  2. Add ice to 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 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.
