Happy Hour: Grapefruit Mocktail

So, I saw this on Facebook a few weeks ago, and thought I would try it. Not sure if it is carving my body into bikini-worthy standard, but it is a wonderful pick me up first thing in the morning and it has become my daily go-to.

I have to admit full on grapefruit juice is too much for me (a bit of a weeny) so I do equal parts water to juice. Also, I prefer the flavor of maple syrup to honey and it still has that low glycemic index quality so no nutritional benefit lost.  At first the flavor of apple cider vinegar was a little tart, but I know it is really good for you so I persisted and now my taste buds have gotten used to it.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
