    The Grapefruit Basil Martini

    I'm rockin and rollin wtih grapefruit. Why not? Go on, give me a reason why not.

    Nah, scratch that. I like grapefruit and really don't wanna know why I shouldn't. I used to haaaaate grapefruit. Hated it with the heat of a thousand suns. But then I grew old and my tastebuds hardened and now I love-sauce it. Wuv wuv wuv.

    So here's another cocktail that may initially weird you out, but it will tickle you till you squeel in boozey delight. Trust.

    Ingredients:

    -2 oz vodka

    -1/2 simple syrup

    -1/2 fresh grapefruit or 1 oz grapefruit juice

    -3 or 4 basil leaves

    Muddle the grapefruit, basil and simple syrup. Pack your pint glass with ice and then add the vodka. Shake that shit like a mofo. Strain it into a martini glass or on the rocks, whichever way your wienie wiggles. Or ovaries oscillate. Cheersies!

    I needed this grocery list BEFORE I went to the grocery store, damnit. Now, what kind of cocktail can I make with maple syrup, absolut citron, and cream cheese?

    As a fellow grapefruit lover I say a rousing "YES PLEASE, BEEYATCH!"

    And that's all because I'm not feeling wordy today. Do I have a temperature?

    Sara: Curious, I like that!

    Elly: Mmmm, sounds like breafast to me! Actually, mayple syrup isn't bad in cocktails as a replacement for simple syrup...I'll have to think up something.

    Jeff: Oh absolutely! It's basically a salad.

    Veggie: Yeeehaw beeeyatch! Now go take some Vitamin C. :)

    You had me at vodka. And then more so with grapefruit. I'm a greyhound girl, but geesh. Basil? I'm in love.

    Caroline: Um, YES YOU DO! Put it on your registry! :)

    English Major: Totally right? Classic.

    Colby: I wish we could drink them together! One of these days, twin!
