Grapefruit Spritzer

I got home last night from a weekend in Montreal. It was fun to spend time with friends and family. I drank a lot and went to bed at 2:30 am each night (in case you don't know me, I'm usually in bed by 9:00 pm). I tried a few cocktails that I really liked. Here is one of my favorites. I'm always looking for low-calorie, low-sugar options. This one is delicious.


  • Juice from 1/2 a grapefruit
  • 3 ounces of vodka
  • 1/2 cup sparkling water
  • Grapefruit or rosemary for garnish (I would have used rosemary but didn't have any in the house
  • Optional: A bit of maple syrup for sweetness, if you'd like
  1. Juice the grapefruit 
  2. Add the grapefruit juice, then maple syrup if you want, then vodka and then top off with sparkling water
  3. Stir the ingredients together
  4. Add your garnish
  5. Enjoy! 


  1. This looks delicious! I'll so have to try making one of my own!
