How to Make Grapefruit Vodka Cocktail

Pink grapefruit vodka cocktail is light and refreshing, with subtle herby flavor from woodsy rosemary. With no added sugar, no fancy equipment needed, and just 4 simple ingredients, you can create the perfect cocktail for brunch, happy hour, or a festive gathering.

– vodka – grapefruit juice – sparkling water – rosemary sprigs

Ingredients Needed

Pour vodka and grapefruit juice into a container with lid. Shake vigorously for about 10 seconds.

Recipe Instructions

Pour into glasses and add sparkling water and rosemary sprigs. If using grapefruit slices as garnish, add to glass rims.

Recipe Instructions

Muddle your rosemary. If you want a stronger rosemary flavor and have a muddler on hand, you could muddle the rosemary and add to your grapefruit juice/vodka mixture before shaking to combine.

Expert Tips

Use fresh-squeezed juice. Using fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice will make all the difference in this cocktail, lending a more vibrant flavor than store-bought juice.

Expert Tips

Substitute your favorite herb. I love rosemary, and because of its piney and woodsy flavor, it pairs really well with citrus. But, herbs like mint or basil would be delicious as a substitute.
