Delish and Refreshing! This is an amazingly refreshing drink that is perfect for any hot summer eve/afternoon. I made my own little twist by adding a light vodka called voli instead of the tequila since I can't stomach tequila. Its just as good with vodka and this one in particular also is low calorie! My favorite cocktail of all time has to be this amazing cocoa raspberry creation from voli Ill share it with y'all! enjoy!! Pros: the grapefruit!! Cons: the tequila- I'm actually allergic! Read More

Delicious Combination I have always eaten grapefruit with salt not sugar. It compliments the bitterness way better than covering it with sugar. This combination in the drink is really tasty! I used fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and instead of liqueur I used fresh squeezed orange juice. I will be making this again for sure! Read More
