A Bikini Cocktail – The Perfect Summer Cocktail!

It just reminds us of a refreshing summer libation, so we put “bikini” in the name! It has raspberry jam, (I’m such a fan of cocktails that use jam!) and fresh grapefruit juice in it.

And to make it sparkle, we added sparkling grapefruit soda and club soda.
