Post Script: Tonight I created this beauty:
The Ruby Red
2 parts freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice
1 part premium vodka
3 sloppy shakes of Peychaud's bitters
splash of cranberry juice
plenty of ice
Shake, strain and serve!
(note: a squeeze of lime would have been nice, but I didn't think of it until afterwards.)
PPS. A California State Budget was passed early this morning. (Thurs, Feb 19) Phew.
