This G&T grapefruit and lime cocktail is EVERYTHING on a hot summer’s day! Sipping it by the pool out of a very trendy jar, only serves to heighten the experience. What’s more, it only requires a total of four very basic ingredients. I’m a sucker for a simple pink drink.
If you’re avoiding alcohol, simply leave out the gin and you still have a pretty darn refreshing beverage with tons of fat-burning benefits due to pure freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. You could get lazy with store-bought stuff, but honestly, fresh makes all the difference.
My G&T grapefruit and lime cocktail is not for those who long for a drink that’s astoundingly sweet. It’s packed with tongue-tingly, pout-puckering sweet and sour bitterness that’s right up my alley.

Did you notice that this time we experimented with darker, moodier images??
