This past weekend was the unofficial start of summer and what better way to welcome summer than with a fresh tasting Smirnoff Sourced Grapefruit Cocktail!!
Smirnoff Sourced comes in 3 delicious flavors and is made with real fruit juice! They come in these yummy Cranberry-Apple, Pineapple, and Ruby Red Grapefruit! I chose Smirnoff Sourced Ruby Red Grapefruit to create this delicious cocktail to enjoy with family and friends in the backyard. I recently tried grapefruit soda and loved it! What better way to give it a twist than mixing this drink with it.
Check out below my easy recipe to make this start of summer cocktail with Smirnoff Sourced!
Fruity cocktails are simply my favorite. The sweetness and tartness of grapefruit are a perfect combination!
