Pink grapefruit apricot martini and 6 other delicious summertime drinks

This weekend marks our first summertime long weekend here in Canada, 
and though the weather is still not very cooperative
 in terms of warmth, a long weekend is always welcomed. 
I'm specially looking forward to sprucing up our backyard furniture 
and finishing some projects that have been lingering since last summer. 
And hopefully once everything is all done,
 I can sit down and enjoy one of these yummy martinis. 
 I am not much of a martini type of gal, but when 
deciding on a summertime drink the citrus
 flavours of the pink grapefruit and the 
sweetness of the apricots, seemed to be the right choice. 
 The fact that the pink grapefruit is such a gorgeous
 fruit to photograph might have also played a small role in my decision...;) 

Pink grapefruit apricot martini 

2 oz. pink grape fruit-flavored vodka such as Absolute Ruby Red
3 oz. apricot syrup or such as Amoretti 
Ice
2-3 fresh apricot (optional)
If opting to have the apricots as garnish- Cut apricots into quarters and allow to soak in the pink grapefruit-flavored vodka for 2-3 hours or more.
Next, mix the vodka, apricot syrup, and ice into a cocktail shaker and mix. Pace apricots at bottom of glass and strain into a martini glass to serve.
Also, check out the amazing cocktails created by some 
of my fellow bloggers :
