  • Yield: Serves 8
  • Prep time: 10 minutes

On a hot summer day, nothing quite quenches one's thirst like fresh, cold lemonade. It's a summertime staple. But seriously, why should lemons have all the fun?

Sure, there is limeade, but how often do you see grapefruitade?

What I love about adding grapefruit into the mix, pun intended, is that it is naturally sweet so the beverage requires even less sugar. And this recipe uses honey instead of refined sugar. Now that's the perfect summer treat. You'll probably want to double this recipe... if not triple it.


  • 1 5-lb. grapefruit
  • 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup warm water


Juice all but one of the grapefruits. Personally, I add the pulp back in. I like to chew my citrus drinks. Cut the remaining grapefruit in half, and then into slices.

Add the juice and grapefruit slices to a small pitcher. And the pulp, if you swing that way.

Cut the lime in half and add the juice from one half to the pitcher. Slice the remaining half and add it to the pitcher.

Dissolve 1/4 cup of honey in 1/2 cup of warm water and add it to the grapefruit mixture. Stir everything to combine.

Place the pitcher in the fridge to chill for about an hour. When ready to serve, add 2 cups of ice.
