What to mix with Grapefruit soda?

What can I mix with Grapefruit soda? It is the Gus brand and is sweet without being too sweet.

Thanks!

  1. Vodka

    1. Gin. Think greyhound (gin + grapefruit juice). Excellent combination.

      1. Tequila and grapefruit soda with a little lime juice makes La Paloma.

        1. lychee juice and vodka or gin :-)

          1. Vodka or a dry gin. Mezcal may actually be nice, too. The Ilegal in particular has a smoky flavor that works great in this combo.

              Mezcal for a dry grapefruit soda is my recommendation as well. If the grapefruit soda is sweet, I'll mix it with tequila and do a mezcal floater as a smoky complement.

            2. Vodka & fresh basil

              1. Campari!

                1. When on my last Caribbean vacation, the hotel provided free Ting soda, a grapefruit soda, and it went really well with light rum.

                    We had ting in Costa Rica. I liked it.

                  2. How about a twist on a Pimm's cup?

                    St. Germain also plays well with grapefruit soda.
