The Grapefruit Martini

We have been celebrating the holidays with our great friends for many years. Each year I bring the same thing. Not this year! When I received the Leafcutter Designs Cocktail Dice, I decided to “roll the dice” and see what cocktail I could bring to the party! At first I wasn’t sure how the ingredients would “play” together, but the end result was delightful! Everyone enjoyed the libation and I was thrilled! It isn’t everyday you get to roll the dice and have the perfect result!

The Grapefruit Martini
By Susan R-H

For Each Cocktail You Will Need:

4 ounces of freshly squeezed Ruby Red grapefruit. Your yield will vary on the juice of the grapefruit.
1 1/2 ounces good quality vodka (I chose Grey Goose)
1 1/2 ounces of orange Liquor (I chose Grand Marnier)
1 slice of orange peel

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the ingredients and give it a solid 1 minute shake! Strain into a chilled Martini glass and garnish with the orange peel. This was a very delightful cocktail! It is always an adventure when you “Roll the Dice”.
