This sparkling grapefruit cocktail is super simple to make and is the perfect summer drink to serve at your next party! Read on to see how to make it…
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a new cocktail post, so I thought it was high time to get one live! As I write up this Sparking Grapefruit Vodka Cocktail concoction, I’ve been thinking back to our recent trip to Italy and I’m sure I will be inspired to whip up even more tasty libations very soon. Traveling is always a fun way to get inspired, isn’t it?
I love looking around on a late afternoon to see what’s on hand in my kitchen and whipping up a fun drink to toast all that the hubs and I accomplished in the day. After all, each work day starts early and tends to feel a bit like a marathon, even when it’s summertime. Like many of you, I’m entirely wiped out and ready to just play around in the yard or kick on the tv by the time the sun is setting.
And that is just what was happening when this really easy and sweet drink found it’s way to me. It’s important to note that here in Maryland, you can’t buy any alcohol in a grocery store. Even beer and wine require a separate trip to a liquor store. That means I’m constantly running out of both and often have to resort to the old liquor cabinet. Desperate times and all that…
How to Make a Sparkling Vodka Cocktail
Luckily, on the day I made this drink I had a few staples including Izze’s Sparkling Grapefruit on hand. These are great for baby showers or parties and I always seem to have a few leftovers lying around. This time, I decided to add some cranberry, a squeeze of lime and vodka together for a delightful cocktail that tasted just like a hard earned afternoon should.
Here’s my simple recipe, but feel free to go into your own cabinet and see what you have on hand to whip up your personal version. After all, nothing about relaxing should include yet another errand. Cheers my dears!
Sparking Grapefruit Vodka Drink
1 bottle of Izze’s Sparkling Grapefruit
3 ounces of vodka
Healthy splash of cranberry juice
Squeeze of lime
Directions: Pour ingredients into large cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and pour over two glasses of ice. Sip and enjoy! It’s as easy as pie!
Note: If your cocktail shaker is smaller and only makes one drink at a time, pour approx. 1/3 of the grapefruit drink and 1.5 ounces of the vodka into the shaker. And if you’re serving a crowd, increase the servings accordingly.
Now who’s ready to get shakin’?! I daresay you’ll want to experiment with even more Izze flavors after tasting this refreshing drink!
