Grapefruit Martini

06/19/2013

It’s Hump Day Happy Hour time!

I had two lonely pink grapefruits sitting in my fruit bowl for awhile and I never quite decided what to do with them.  Well, it was happy hour time, and I had a couple friends over, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try out a new martini.  I had scribbled down a recipe that sounded delicious from Liv Life’s blog that I came across earlier in the week and now was the perfect time to give it a try.  Boy am I glad I did!  It was quite refreshing…and not too sweet.  If you prefer a little more sweetness to your flavored martinis, just add a splash of simple syrup.  I tried it with and without a splash and I liked it best with a little simple syrup.  One friend preferred it without.  So it’s really just a matter of personal preferences, and the sweetness of your grapefruit.  The recipe on the blog also gives proportions to make a pitcher which I think would be ideal if your are making this for several people.
