grapefruit martini

I used to hate grapefruit because I had never tasted a good one until about a year ago. Since then I can't get enough, starting with this grapefruit martini. Truthfully, I rarely drink liquor. I'm more of a beer girl but my mom loves grapefruit martinis and after the first one I was hooked! This drink is the perfect summer cocktail with grapefruits still in season. You can easily juice a grapefruit or use a good grapefruit juice from the store. Oh and please don't buy simple syrup. A few weeks ago I was wandering around William-Sonoma and a man walked in and asked if they carried simple syrup. Simple syrup is simply water and sugar, tricky I know... so please don't buy it! All you have to do is measure out equal parts water and sugar, bring the water to a boil, add the sugar and turn on low and stir until sugar is dissolved. Throw a glass in the freezer for 10 minutes, cut a slice of grapefruit and run it along the edge of the glass. Sprinkle a few spoonfuls of sugar on a small plate and dip the top of the martini glass in the sugar. Mix ingredients in a shaker with ice and serve.
