St-Germain Grapefruit Martini

Tart and slightly sweet, this martini is a fun variation on the more traditional gin or vodka drink. After my sister and I mixed up the grapefruit margaritas a few weeks ago, we still had an abundance of grapefruit on our hands. The sweet orange juice in this drink balances the tartness of the grapefruit without the need for an additional sweetener. With a splash of my beloved St-Germain, we had a combination that was truly awesome.

  3. I have a grapefruit tree in the front yard so I'm always on the lookout for ways to use them. This looks so refreshing.

  4. That grapefruit isn't "rudy" red - it's "ruby" red.
