Grapefruit Crush Recipe
End of summer delight
As a companion to the famous Orange Crush cocktail, try one of our favorite end-of-summer “go-to” cocktails…The Grapefruit Crush. This is pretty darn refreshing, and easy sipping on a hot, late summer day. It is best if you can fresh squeeze the juice, but if you arew hitting the grocery store…stick with pure juice. Natural is better!
Actually, we like it so much one of our Crush plaid shirts is named after it!
