These drinks tasted really incredible. This was one of the first drinks I have ever sweetened with Agave, and it was perfect.
We juiced the 2 types of grapefruits (by hand, without a juicer!). One was a "normal color, orangey on the outside, and fruity pink inside, and another type that looked like a giant lemon when you cut it open. Also, after adding just a little bit of the agave nectar, the flavors were balanced perfectly! The sugar around the rim is a fun flavor addition as well. I always love sweet and tart together.
You can drink the juice by itself, or add a little bit of sparkling wine or gin if you wanted to.
1 part grapefruit juice (we used 1 1/2 C.)
1 part sparkling wine (dry and less sweet would be better) or sparkling water
2 tsp. organic agave nectar
Jars or fancy glasses of your choice
Organic Cane Sugar for Rims
- Mix grapefruit juice, sparkling wine, and agave in a pitcher or similar.
- Grab your jars or glasses, and add sugar to the rim. To do this, I put some water onto a plate, and dipped the glasses in the sugar. I love the way the sugar helped add even more sweetness to a tart citrus flavor.
- Fill glass a bit over half with ice. Pour the grapefruit juice mixture over the ice, and garnish with a wedge of grapefruit. Love the color of these drinks!
Fun Fact: Citrus is a great way to help boost your immune system!
"This large subtropical fruit known for its slightly bitter and sour taste is called a grapefruit as it grows in clusters like grapes. High in enzymes, water content and having less sodium, grapefruit helps accelerate weight loss. It also helps in cancer prevention, boosts immune levels and aids digestion.
