Skinny Grapefruit G and T

Is it just me or have grapefruit - flavored spirits completely taken over everything?  I've been seeing grapefruit flavored vodkas, rums and mixers all over the place and, let me tell you, I'm completely on board!  I LOOOOVE grapefruit and although it's not a summer seasonal fruit it's a delightfully refreshing addition to your summer cocktail.

This skinny cocktail has been my "go-to" all summer long!  I make it with gin but it is equally delicious with vodka.
