There’s nothing that compares to the tanginess and flavor that a juicy Ruby Red grapefruit possesses when making a cocktail. This light and airy drink fits the menu for any occasion—whether it’s for a holiday dinner party or summer soiree on the beach. No need to worry about drinking your dessert either—this cocktail is perfect for those who wish not to go overboard with sugary drinks. Guilt-free and divine!


The Ruby Red Cocktail is also a lively cocktail option for anyone hosting a girl’s brunch, as bright citrus, zesty cucumber, and rosemary will lighten up any carb-heavy meal. This would make a great mocktail for as well, omitting the vodka of course.
