Grapefruit can be found in many cocktails and it is an excellent citrus that adds a touch of sour to drinks. This collection of mixed drinks shows off the versatility of this favorite fruit.

More often than not, grapefruit is used as a juice, though some use the fresh fruit and some call specifically for ruby red or pink grapefruit or their juice. It is easy to make fresh grapefruit juice if you have a large citrus or electric juicer.

If you are interested in developing your own grapefruit cocktails, you will want to explore the fruit flavor pairing suggestions.

Grapefruit Soda Cocktails:

Some cocktails call for grapefruit soda. You can find some excellent options at almost any store, especially an organic market, yet Squirt is a reliable option.

Grapefruit Liquor Cocktails:

Grapefruit-flavored liquors are very rare and almost unheard of with the exception of vodka. There are a few brands that produce grapefruit vodkas and, while the cocktail list is a very short one, this is a great flavored vodka to use in non-flavored vodka cocktails like the Sea Breeze, where the tart citrus could compliment the drink.

This collection of cocktail recipes is an ongoing project and is updated regularly.
