  1. my favorite grapefruit drink
    grapefruit, alcohol (usually gin or vodka)

    i drink it often and i bought a juicer last week, so more often is now possible :) Season is almost over though :(

    • We were discussing buying a juicer. At the end of the day we don’t really have the counter space.

      Did you get a citrus juicer or an all around fruit pulverizer?
