Grapefruit Spritzer

A couple weeks back we were surrounded by the smell of citrus blossoms anytime we stepped outdoors; a smell that had us feeling energized and uplifted.  This might explain our current obsession with all things citrus.  Lately, we’ve written about orange surface cleaner and strawberry honey lemonade.  Today, to help you start the weekend off right, we bring you a simple yet refreshing recipe for a grapefruit spritzer.
