Lillet Blanc and Grapefruit

Vacation week has finally arrived and I couldn't be more excited! The Mr. and I are headed to Scottsdale, AZ, for several days of golfing, hiking and poolside relaxation at this beautiful hotel. We're pretty sure we'll be the only guests without grey hair, but are completely comfortable with that scenario. See, when you live in one of the biggest cities in the world, the only escape for true rejuvenation must be far away from densely populated ares (and filled with gorgeous spas)!

We don't leave until Wednesday, but this past weekend kicked-off our upcoming adventure to the Southwest. Some friends invited us to dinner on Friday night at Tacombi... We enjoyed life-changing tacos, seriously, go there!

And, later in the weekend, the Mr. and I played mixologist. We didn't want a margarita, but still wanted something citrus and refreshing. After a few different combinations, we perfected the Lillet Blanc and Grapefruit cocktail. This drink is very light and not too sweet; great on it's own or would be nice with a first-course at dinner.

In a cocktail shaker, mix 1 oz. Grey Goose vodka, 1 1/2 oz. Lillet Blanc and 2 1/2 oz. fresh squeezed grapefruit juice with ice. After a few shakes, strain the liquid into a martini glass and serve with a twist of orange. Enjoy!
