Grapefruit and Lemonade Spritzer....

Something bubbly - something sweet - something with a tang - something with amazing flavor.......

How about a Grapefruit and Lemonade Spritzer!?

I created this recipe with summertime in mind. This is the perfect beverage for a party or to make you feel refreshed.
