Recipe | Sparkling Grapefruit Lemonade

to say that it’s been hot and humid around this parts is kind of an understatement. we went from barely-there spring to full-blown summer. all those miserable winter months i wanted warm temperatures desperately and now i’m looking for a little relief! we’ve had quite a few storms, too, so that just puts the humidity level over the top. 
i got a little creative the other week and mixed up a refreshing summer drink that helps take the edge off the warm temperatures. it couldn’t be easier, really. i make myself a glass almost everyday! 
i started by adding some sugar to the rim of the glass, for a little something extra. i simply took a lemon slice, rubbed it around the top of the glass, and dipped the glass in sugar. 
start by pouring the sparking grapefruit water into the glass, about halfway. 
fill the rest of the glass up with lemonade. i used store-bought lemonade, but this would be so good with homemade lemonade, too! 
for a little extra freshness, add a couple squeezes of lemon juice and grapefruit juice to the top. if you’d like to make this a boozy drink, add a splash of your favorite booze! i added two thinly sliced lemon wedges to the rim of the glass, as well. finish it off with a straw! then kick your feet up and enjoy this refreshing and easy-as-pie summer drink.
