Greyhound Martini

I am not a drinker.
Really. But when my husband suggested we make "Greyhounds" for New Years Eve as the signature drink for our house party, I thought, "Cool". I dig a signature drink.

We got a bottle of Ciroc vodka (you know from the commercials with Puffy Combs on them) for a gift at Christmas and we went out and bought some, way pricey, but freshly squeezed grapefruit juice for the ingredients and we were set.

I mixed up turbinado sugar with some pink sprinkle sugar and rimmed martini glasses and voila...a beautiful and amazing drink! It tasted JUST like a fresh grapefruit in the morning. SOO yummy. But be careful...ahem...uh...these bite back if you aren't careful. *wink*

So get out your martini shakers girls and try it out at your next party....your guests will love that you have a 'Signature Drink'. So ...Sex and the City! ;)
1 part Vodka
2.5 parts Grapefruit, freshly squeezed (get the fresh...TOTALLY makes a difference!
