Okay, so here's how to make that yumalicious grapefruit drink:

In your blender, combine:

1 large grapefruit, quartered
8 oz. grapefruit juice
1-2 cups chilled prosecco
Ice (more for a frozen daquiri, less for a bellini-like cocktail).
2 tbsp. honey

Puree, then pour into a fancy glass and garnish with a slice of grapefruit. A few sprigs of fresh mint would be nice, too (although after hearing my schpiel in the last post, you're probably not surprised that I could not find any fresh herbs in this woman's home).

Here's a tip for those who don't want to add honey/sugar/aspartame: to bring out the natural sweetness of the grapefruit, our southern friend Mary likes to sprinkle some salt into the concoction, or right on the fruit before it goes into the blender. It DEFINITELY works!!

I almost wanted to make a few for the neighbors and apologize for copping their grapefruit.
Almost.

The next time you're in Florida and you see these gigantic globular gems dangling from their shiny green leaves, find a way to snatch them. Even if it means risking your life in the middle of the night to shimmy up the trunk and yank 'em off.

I am a bad, bad girl.

;) Holly
