Tiki's Grill & Bar hosted the launch of SKYY Vodka's new Texas Grapefruit and Pacific Blueberry SKYYInfusions on Tuesday.

The new fruit-infused vodkas lend themselves to spring and summertime cocktails, with no muddling involved, and guests were invited to a quartet of drinks made from the SKYYInfusions, including Texas Toast, with the Texas Grapefruit, lemon-lime soda, grenadine and fresh lime, and Blueberry Blush, with the Pacific Blueberry, cranberry juice, lime juice and simple syrup.

In keeping with the event's theme, Tiki's executive chef Ronnie Nasuti came up with a handful of dishes incorporating the fruits of the day, including blueberry-sauced ribs and ahi crudo with avocado and grapefruit, for a yummy evening.
