I love all types of citrus - lemon, lime, pomelo, kumquats, … -, I love their refreshing tart and sweet range of citrus flavors. Grapefruit, whether it’s pink, red, golden, or white, is the star ingredient in this drink, and happens to be one of my favorites from the citrus family. I like that grapefruits usually have few seeds and are high in dietary fiber.
A splash of tart tangy lime juice adds a little more citrus and vitamin C, and the color of pomegranate juice makes this juice a pretty shade of pink. This drink is loaded with many beneficial nutrients, has antioxidants and substance that fight free radicals. Grapefruit juice cocktail is a great drink to enjoy anytime. I really love making it as a refresh cleansing breakfast juice.
I’m not into pulp in my juice so I strain it out. How about you? Do you like your fresh squeezed citrus juice with or without pulp?
