Ginger, Grapefruit & Lime Juice Print Recipe Print Recipe

Love ginger. Love grapefruit. Love limes.

Therefore, it was likely that this recipe would be a keeper in my book. I don’t have a book, but if I did… well, you get the point.

It was only moments after seeing this recipe on 101 Cookbooks that I was quickly jotting down the ingredients and running to the store. It was love at first sip and to be honest was lucky I didn’t consume the entire batch in that moment. I was a good wife and saved a few drops for my husband. If only we could get this on tap, now that would be awesome. Thank goodness grapefruits are in season (& inexpensive) right now because I will be making a big batch of this, a-sap.

This juice is incredibly refreshing and the ginger gives it a nice kick. Makes me feel healthy. I say play around with the ingredients, make it strong (ginger) or sweet depending on how you like it, serve chilled and enjoy! Cheers!

 

Ginger, Grapefruit & Lime Juice Recipe

{Recipe adapted from 101 Cookbooks}

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Truvia or Stevia (zero calorie sweeteners) – or use regular sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled then grated
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice – about 3 limes
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh grapefruit juice – 4 grapefruits

Directions

In a small saucepan, on medium heat, mix together sugar, ginger, and water. Simmer for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a glass cup or bowl – place in the fridge or freezer to cool.

In a pitcher, combine grapefruit and lime juices. Remove the ginger mixture from the fridge/freezer and strain into the grapefruit juices. If you don’t want pulp, you can strain the grapefruit juices. I like the pulp. Stir the ingredients and taste. Feel free to add more sugar or juices. I like it strong and ginergy so this was perfect for me. Serve chilled with ice or add sparkling water to give it some bubbles.

Makes about 2 cups of juice.

    This sounds like a perfect summer drink. A splash (or two) of vodka would be good in it I bet.

    I bookmarked that recipe too, and have been wanting to try it. It’s still cold here in New Jersey and this seems like more of a warm weather treat. So I think I’ll bide my time just a bit longer. Thanks for sharing!

    I saw your link earlier today for this and have been dying to see the recipe all day! This sounds delicious! I can’t wait to try it. I made ginger syrup for my son’s last party and wanted to wear it like perfume. And fresh lime is my all time favorite flavor. This will happen this weekend for sure. THANKS, yet again, Lisa for the great recipe!!!!!
