It’s brunch, and it’s still HOT HOT HOT in HOTLANTA! How refreshing does this drink recipe sound??? I’ll be making a big batch of it for our tailgate crew, so the pitcher portions are in parenthesis. Enjoy!

1 oz vodka (1 cup or 8 oz for a pitcher)

2 oz ruby red grapefruit juice (2 cups or 16 oz)

1 oz of orange liqueur (Grand Marnier or Cointreau – 8 oz or 1 cup)

a splash of lemon juice (1-2 tsp – taste it and see)

a splash of grenadine (1-2 tsp to taste)

Add a sprig of fresh rosemary, optional

For 1 drink: Add vodka, grapefruit juice, orange liqueur and a splash of lemon juice to a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain over a cup of ice. Add a splash of grenadine and garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary.

FOR A PITCHER: throw all ingredients in a pitcher and stir. Ideal if you can chill it beforehand, but either way, serve over ice, and add rosemary if you want.
