Ingredients for strawberry grapefruit vodka cocktail

Grapefruit Juice – Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice is best, but you can also use store-bought if that’s what you have on hand.

Fresh Strawberries – I like to use fresh strawberries, but if they are not in season frozen strawberries will also work.

Lemon Juice – Just a little bit of fresh lemon juice helps to balance out the flavor.

Club Soda – This adds a little bit of fizz to the cocktail.

Vodka – Use your favorite vodka for this recipe.

Simple Syrup – This adds a touch of sweetness to the vodka cocktail and is easy to make at home.
