The Gourmet Review

This freshly squeezed grapefruit cocktail with Absolut Ruby Red Vodka is refreshingly addictive, but lives or dies with the ingredients. Guaranteed you will get great raves for this party drink. The cocktail is named the “19th Hole” and is featured at the golf club bar at Four Seasons Hualala on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Bartenders won’t know this drink, so look up the recipe on The Gourmet Review and make sure the bartender uses fresh grapefruit juice, preferably Ruby Red grapefruit. Enjoy. This is SO good.



1.5 oz Absolut Ruby Red Vodka

1.5 oz freshly squeezed Ruby Red Grapefruit juice (can substitute other freshly squeezed grapefruit)

1/2 oz fresh lime juice

1/2 oz Agave Nectar

Raw sugar for glass rim

Fresh mint leaf (optional)


Squeeze fresh grapefruit and remove any seeds.

Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice.

Shake until mixture is cold.

Dip cocktail or martini glass in raw sugar and to cover rim. You can quickly dip the glass in the drink mixture first to make sure the sugar remains on the glass.

Pour mixture into glass.

Add fresh mint leaf for color.
