Mike's Grapefruit Martini Recipe


When I first met Mike he was a bartender and I was a server at Ruby Tuesday.  All that experience plus bartending school has really shaped him into an awesome bartender. We love to entertain and Mike’s favorite thing to do is play bartender for our friends. He loves to whip up some drinks to impress them.

We were at a martini bar with a couple of our friends and there was a great grapefruit martini that Mike wanted to try and recreate. What he came up with is delicious, refreshing drink.

In a martini glass place a few cubes of ice. Pour in the vodka and tripe sec. Mix the grapefruit and lime juice together. Fill the glass with grapefruit/lime juice. Top with a splash of cranberry.
