I created this drink many years ago, while I was on a strict weight loss diet. Grapefruit is full of vitamin C and is reputed to help burn calories, so I decided to add some of my favorite calorie-free soft drink and a decent amount of vodka for a skinny cocktail. Ummmm, yeah, it was GOOD! I lost the weight and was able to enjoy a cocktail, too!
