2 shots Stolichnaya Vodka, or similar
4 ounces Pink Grapefruit Juice
1 tablespoon Simple Syrup (See our recipe for simple syrup on this site.)
Sugar Rimmed Glass
HERE’s WHAT YOU DO:
In a cocktail shaker full of ice, combine two shots of vodka, four ounces of grapefruit juice, and a tablespoon of simple syrup.
Shake and strain into a martini glass, or serve on the rocks in a traditional cocktail glass.
