it's pretty simple.
you just need:
some grapefruits
a case of fresca {oh, heeeeey, fresca, i ain't seen you since elementary school!}
a bottle of club soda
some crushed ice
some salt and/or some sugar/splenda/whatevs
a cocktail shaker
crushed ice {or cubes - shiiiit, it's yo birfday, no?}

get your cocktail shaker all pre-chilled - i recommend a stainless one, natch.
pour in vodka and some ice cubes.
add fresca & club soda.
{i am a pooh and i like more fresca than club soda, but you can start at a 1:1 ratio on the fresca/club soda and go from there ... same with the vodka ... make it as strong or weak as you like ... hell, for that matter, if you don't dig grapefruit, you could easily get down with some orange or lime slices}

shake, shake, shake
shake, shake, shake
shake yo boooooty cocktail shaker

pour out onto your magical glass full of crushed {or cubed} ice

garnish with grapefruit slices to be enjoyed post-beverage completion. mmmmm ... it's the best part. ;)

and this is how vodka, fresca and club soda lived happily ever after.

What a beautiful thing. Fresca, I forgot about you. I love grapefruit and vodka and club soda, so this is right up my alley.

The pouring photo, frame it. Love the angle.
