  • 2 ounces vodka: Choose a good quality vodka for the best flavor.
  • 1 ounce grapefruit juice: Freshly squeezed for the best taste.
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec: This adds a subtle orange flavor.
  • 1/4 ounce lime juice: Freshly squeezed to add a bright tartness.
  • Grapefruit twist: For garnish.


  • Chill the glass: Start by chilling your cocktail glass in the freezer to keep your drink colder longer.
  • Mix the ingredients: In a cocktail shaker, combine the vodka, grapefruit juice, triple sec, and lime juice. Fill the shaker with ice, covering the liquid.
  • Shake: Secure the lid on the shaker and shake vigorously for about 15 seconds. The goal is to chill the mixture thoroughly and mix the flavors well.
  • Strain: Take your chilled glass out of the freezer. Strain the cocktail into the glass to remove the ice chips.
  • Garnish: Twist a strip of grapefruit peel over the drink to release its oils, then drop it into the glass or place it on the rim as a garnish.
  • Serve immediately: Enjoy your Grapefruit Cosmo fresh and cold!
