Tasting grapefruit juice

  1. Gringo Says:

    I eat a Ruby Red grapefruit every day, in the way that people will peel an orange and eat, and not out of masochism. I will occasionally cheat by sprinkling sugar on it. I eat only red grapefruit- Ruby Red or others.

    I do not like grapefruit in juice form, however. As canned grapefruit juice is usually not Ruby Red, that might explain it.

    A German student visiting the States told me how much he liked grapefruit here. Chalk that up to Ruby Red.

    What a cutie!

  3. Tom Says:

    Too funny! I have to say, I love grapefruit juice.

  4. foxmarks Says:

    She should try it with vodka on a summer evening. In about 20 years…

  5. CV Says:

    Foxmarks, my thoughts exactly. A little vodka and cranberry juice do wonders for grapefruit juice (aka The Seabreeze).

    She may change her mind in a couple of decades 🙂

  6. neo-neocon Says:

    foxmarks: it might make her keel over again 🙂

  7. John Dough Says:

    Try sprinkling a little salt on the grapefruit instead of sugar. The operative word in that last sentence is LITTLE.

    Does Child/Family Services know about this child abuse?

    This past summer, I mixed up some frozen lemonade for my son and nephews. The 6-year old couldn’t wait. He kept saying, “I LOVE lemonade!” I served it, although it looked a little cloudy, which I thought was caused by air bubbles in the water. One taste and he made a horrible face and said, “I HATE lemonade!” It was grapefruit juice. He’s now a little leery of anything I serve him.

    I too like to eat plain grapefruit, but the juice is nasty.

  10. Mrs Whatsit Says:

    Canned grapefruit juice has a nasty metallic bitterness, as though the acid in the juice has eaten into the walls of the can. Ugh, yuck, an excellent reason to fall over. As an adult I love fresh grapefruit, but as a child, I needed sugar on it (my grandmother of the Villager outfits used to place a welcome maraschino cherry in the center.) Kids’ taste buds react more powerfully to the bitterness than our more jaded adult mouths.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
