Hey, this is good.

We just bought some of this grapefruit soda at Trader Joe's, and I love it. Real grapefruit taste, just a tiny bit sweet. So refreshing. I'm drinking it right now in front of my computer. I think I'm addicted.

We've been doing a lot of cocktail craft at home lately and are fixated on grapefruit as an ingredient.

Our current fave:

1/2 grapefruit, hand juiced
3.0 oz light rum
1.0 oz Pimm's #1
shaken with ice, poured into 2 ice-filled highball glasses, topped off with Izze grapefruit soda.

Oooh, I love Hansen's grapefruit soda, I'll have to keep an eye out for the TJ brand sodas...

What up JJ - back visiting your blog again - just love it! Oh and I LOVE Trader Joe's. I have to look for the soda next time, sounds refreshing. Did you see their new reusable shopping bags? I had to buy one - I have a pic of it that I'm going to post soon.

oh yeah, we just polished off our last bottle last night! We like to mix it with oj. And a splash of vodka if we're in that kind of mood. mmmmm. I wish I had some right now.

Fresh Market sells two different brands of grapefruit soda. One is GUS (grown up soda.) I forget the name of the other one, but they're both in the refrigerated and soda shelf sections. They're both a bit sweeter than the TJ's version.

Fresca is grapefruit soda...from the grocery. :)

I have a random martini that I made with this one night from random ingredients in my fridge/bar...my friends LOVE it!!

1 part Absolut APeach Vodka
2 parts grapefruit soda
splash of POM

stir and serve in a martini glass or over ice if you want...either way, it's awesome!!

p.s.
...don't shake in a shaker unless you want it to explode (duh)

i'm obsessed with trader joe's. i live walking distance within 2 of them. now whenever i go to a regular supermarket, i feel like i'm going to go into panic mode with all the overstimulation.

Oh, this looks good. I have a weakness for the Safeway brand of grapefruit soda. Maybe this one has better ingredients? More actual juice? Unfortunately the nearest Trader Joe's is a day's drive away. Next time I'm around one of their stores, though, I'll have to try that kind

have you ever had Fresca? it's a grapefruit soda and it is DELICIOUS! get the original - i'm not a huge fan of the new flavors. :)

Strangely enough, I'm not really a Fresca fan!
