Hey hey babes!
It’s almost summer and THAT’S A HUGE DEAL.
I am NOT a winter person. Really, really, really not. I’m not even a below 60 degree’s type of person. You know?
Totally into warm weather and the sun. Most of the time I feel like I actually need it, or I’m possessed by the devil or something..
Alright so anyway, memorial day weekend is coming up and I love it – obviously because it’s the start of summer. I’m super into the whole idea of it.
Especially cocktail style. Beneficial, of course!
I recently launched the skinnified e-book! (You can check out all the details here!) It has a ton of beneficial cocktails because I feel like summer should just be filled with those. And because I always want to up my cocktail game and add some good ingredients so it isn’t all that bad. Tequila with green juice benefits – duh!
SO in honor of summer and the new launch – I’m giving you guys a super delish & favorite drink that’s in the book.
I can never get enough grapefruit – it’s a go-to for me. The benefits are insane. I actually try to drink a glass of fresh grapefruit juice in the mornings or just eat some.
// from this article:
Just a half a grapefruit each day can ensure the average adult is meeting at least half of typical vitamin C requirements, one of the reasons grapefruit benefits many areas of health.
Grapefruit also contains health-promoting phytochemicals like lycopene and beta-carotene (in the pink and red varieties) as well as limonoids like limonin and flavonoids like naringenin. Not surprisingly, it makes the American Institute for Cancer Research’s list of “Foods that Fight Cancer.” (1) Plus, multiple studies, including one published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, reveal that grapefruit is an extremely smart choice if you’re trying to lose weight with just half a grapefruit per day making a significant impact on weight loss efforts.

6 Major Grapefruit Benefits:
1. Weight Loss
2. Cellulite Reduction
3. Cancer Fighter
4. Immunity Booster
5. Stroke Risk Reducer
6. Skin Health And Appearance Enhancer
I mean, come on.
And they are low in calories, which is clearly a plus. Find more on that article here!
Alright let’s get to this bomb ass summer drink so you can start your summer yummy & beneficial.
It’s the grapefruit tequila ‘martini’. I use tequila because I love it, simple as that. It’s my go-to when making any kind of drink!
You can replace it with whatever you like, but I really find that tequila is the best combo with this one.
+ handful of ice in a cocktail shaker
+ ½ cup of grapefruit juice
+ 2 shots of tequila
+ ½ cup of ruby red rosé with grapefruit wine
The ruby red wine goes realllllly well because it’s grapefruit flavored.
I highly recommend it!
& if you don’t have an actual grapefruit on hand – no worries! Just use 100% grapefruit juice. Yes, you can literally order it on Amazon and get it like, tomorrow. LAZY? Whatever.
I haven’t tried this with regular rosé but I’m sure it’s just as good. If you do, let me know!!!
