Humid Citrus Cocktail

It's hot. Sticky hot. Try this cooling cocktail to soothe sweaty moods. It is easily made into a non-alcoholic drink (see below).

Humid Citrus Cocktail

makes 3 single-sized drinks (perhaps not a typical amount but as I'm too hot to do math, you'll have to deal)

In a shaker filled halfway with ice mix:

2 oz lemon juice
2 oz. grapefruit juice
1/2 oz simple syrup (more can be added for those who prefer sweeter drinks)

Stir or cover and shake.

Pour into 3 single-sized cocktail glasses (a.k.a. martini glasses).

Add vodka until liquid is 1/2" from the top. Top with seltzer. Add a blackberry. Drink. Repeat.

For the non-alcoholic version, fill to top with seltzer.
