Brighten up your day with Texas-made grapefruit-infused vodka drinks.

Austin, Texas, has long been known as a craft beer hot spot. But did you know, the Lone Star State’s capital city is also home to award-winning spirits? Deep Eddy Vodka is one such operation. Established in 2010, Deep Eddy’s vodkas are column-distilled 10 times using corn, the finest Texas water, and natural flavors. The result is nothing but smooth, clean vodka available in several flavors, include the Ruby Red Grapefruit vodka, handcrafted from real grapefruit juice and Deep Eddy’s award-winning vodka. Enjoy it on the rocks, mixed with club soda or with other mixers in your most inventive cocktails, or in the three recipes below.
