Ruby Red Martini Photo by Sean Michael HowerThis cocktail is a great use for seasonal citrus and is guaranteed to brighten up any winter day (or night!). Like sunshine in a martini glass, this drink offers divine floral notes, a pucker of citrus and a hint of bubbly that meet the lips with every sip.

We think the mixologists at the new Sangrita Bar & Grill Restaurant in Ka‘anapali, Maui must have crafted this martini with a day at the beach in mind. Make it yourself or hit up this new hot spot to taste one made by the pros themselves.

2 oz. organic Ocean Vodka
0.5 oz. St. Germaine
5 oz. fresh grapefruit juice
2 oz. sparkling wine
Twist of grapefruit skin as garnish

Shake first three ingredients with ice, strain into a martini glass and top with a float of sparkling wine. Garnish and enjoy!
