Looking for an easy vodka mixed drink? This vodka cocktail recipe is made with Absolut vodka, freshly squeezed grapefruit and flavored soda. Refreshing!

Hi all! Patty here again with your Thirsty Thirteenth cocktail. You might be saying, ‘Another grapefruit drink?’ I know I know, I do that a lot but it’s spring and grapefruits are in season. And well, I just love love love a freshly squeezed grapefruit drink, especially when I have my handy dandy juicing machine. I’ve tried all sorts of different citrus juicers and this one really tops them all. No dealing with pulp. No messy cleanup. Simple and easy. I just pull the handle down on halved citrus and strain that delicious fresh juice right into my cocktail shaker.

A couple of weeks ago I was playing around with different combinations of Absolut® Grapevine cocktails. It’s such a wonderfully mixed fruity vodka of white grape, papaya and dragon fruit. I tried it with some fresh grapefruit and lemon juice along with my go-to mixer, Fresca®, and wham. I was so pleasantly shocked at how amazing the combo went together. I had to share it with you all. Tartness will depend on how large your fruit is. My mantra is to always taste test as I am mixing drinks to make sure it’s exactly to my preference. I do that for all of my friends as well. Everyone has very different taste and some want more sweet while others, like me, want more tart. Feel free to use whatever lemon-lime soda you have on hand.
