  3. Now dredge the rim of glass into the salt.
  4. Add ice and pour 3 parts grapefruit juice to 1 part vodka.

You can use slices or thin wedges of grapefruit as a garnishment.  Simply cut a small slit and slide the slit onto the rim.  As long as you use 3 parts grapefruit juice to 1 part vodka you can use different sizes and types of glasses.
