Ruby Red Vodka Tonic

I'm not a big fan of flavored vodka for the sake of flavored vodka. I'm of the opinion that plain vodka plus fresh ingredients is really the way to go. But your typical cocktails like a Vodka Tonic can be greatly enhanced with grapefruit vodka.

Absolut Ruby Red is a flavored vodka with a collage of citrus flavors. It has many levels of richness, which makes it a great ingredient in a tonic drink. Grapefruit is becoming a popular botanical in gin lately, so this version of a Vodka Tonic is pretty close to a G&T, at least without the juniper.
  • 2 oz. Absolut Ruby Red 
  • tonic water
  • grapefruit slice
Build drink in an Old Fashioned glass with ice and vodka. Garnish with a slice of grapefruit.
