Ruby Red Grapefruit Vodka Soda

Don’t be bitter! Unlike other varieties, Texas Ruby Red grapefruits are known for their sweetness and rich color. All Hands has captured this unique flavor in its signature Ruby Red Vodka Soda with only ultra-premium craft vodka, all-natural fruit flavors, and refreshing sparkling water. Judges at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition gave this one a gold medal in the 2022 competition. This can packs a punch at 10% ABV, so with two bar-strength cocktails per can, it’ll be a fine addition to any summer day.
