*To keep this grain free, go with Circo Vodka which is made with grapes instead of potatoes*
Originally, I had these pegged as a refreshing, summertime drink, but you know what? They’ve floated my boat just fine through the South Florida winter months and another summer too 😉
I am not usually one to be using a martini glass, simply due to the spill factor … but yes, I do occasionally. Someday’s I just want to be *special*.
Most times, I use a rock glass. Great for making a toast and for putting the glass down quickly while laughing, which, if you get a small group of girlfriends drinking these, you will be!
And then, of course, during a BBQ/Pool Party … you gotta bring out the Solo Cups … and everyone sing the song now! Red Solo Cup, I fill you up …
Ok, are you ready for a super yummy, lip smacking adult beverage?
Peach Vodka (I am a firm believer that you need to buy a better brand, not the Gordon stuff or something of that class … if you are prone to headaches, do buy the good stuff, PLEASE!) I’ve switched to Circoc because I’m trying to avoid grains (hence, beer really SHOULD be off limits … another post on Angry Orchard is coming soon)
Pink Grapefruit Juice … I buy the refrigerated stuff, and yes, I spend a little more money on this too
Cranberry Juice … prefer you NOT use the Cranberry Juice COCKTAIL stuff but the real juicy juice stuff!
Fill your glass with ice. Add vodka to desired amount (about 1/3). Pour almost to top with grapefruit juice and add a splash of cranberry. Give a quick stir, make a toast and sip!
Lick your lips, lean towards your girlfriend (or Hubby!) and say “We’ve got a Winner!”
