Take a Greyhound and add the sweet syrup of grenadine for this great Firefly cocktail. The grenadine has two functions in this mixed drink: to balance out the tartness of the grapefruit and to give it a beautiful pink hue with the progressive effect of a Tequila Sunrise.

Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice is best for any cocktail, especially those like this that depend on the juice for flavor.
