The Easiest, Most Refreshing Grapefruit Cocktail

We’re not huge drinkers, but there’s just something about a delicious cocktail. Give me anything grapefruit flavored and I’m a happy lady. All Summer long I’ve been whipping up this refreshing Grapefruit Cocktail for friends {and myself}. It is the easiest cocktail you’ll ever make- because it only takes 2 ingredients!

Italian Soda and Vodka

That’s it! I grabbed the Simple Truth Organic Pink Grapefruit Italian Soda from Kroger (but after making it many times, the Blood Orange flavor is just as good). You can find lots of types of Italian sodas at your local grocery, so feel free to mix it up.

I drink it pretty quickly anyway, so….
