Grapefruit Martini

Madge looks like a well oiled machine, and by well oiled I mean she likes a cocktail. After days of anger management Madge told me a story of her family living in seclusion in Cuba. She recalled Castro's mistress Lina and her mother drinking pitchers of Grapefruit Martinis; spinning tales of their husbands overthrowing the world. To this day Madge can't have grapefruit juice without a hand-rolled Cuban cigar.
