  • 1 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice *
  • 4 ounces vodka (I used Tito's)
  • 1 ounce triple sec liqueur **
  • 1/2 cup sparkling water (I used grapefruit-flavored)


  • If using freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, squeeze your grapefruits. You can either just use a citrus reamer (like I did) or a juicer if you have one. Add juice to a shaker with ice, vodka, and the triple sec. Shake well to combined and slightly chilled.
  • Fill two tumbler/rocks glasses with ice and evenly distribute the grapefruit mix. Top it off with a little sparkling water. I used about 1/8-1/4 cup in each, but you can add to your liking. Garnish with some grapefruit wedges and enjoy!


*can substitute bottled if needed
**adjust according to taste. I find using freshly squeezed juice, you don't need as much and I don't like my drinks too sweet. If using bottled, you will probably need more
if tracking your macros - nutrition breakdown is considering the two ounces of vodka has 128 calories and 32 grams of carbs plus the addition of the grapefruit juice and triple sec
