Until recently, I was scared of grapefruit. I know, that sounds weird, doesn’t it? To be scared of a fruit? But really, I’d never had it and never had the urge to try it. I’m not a fan of eating oranges (the texture weirds me out) so I couldn’t imagine myself eating a grapefruit. I just assumed it would be tart and unappetizing and I wouldn’t like the flavor.

Sometimes my pickiness and fear of trying new things from childhood rears it’s ugly head (who am I kidding; it’s not sometimes, it’s all the time) and I miss out on all the flavors I thought I hated. Like, say lemon desserts…or avocado. I thought I hated both of those things until I started food blogging and tried them and now I’m addicted to both.

A few months ago when I was in Wisconsin, my friend Cathy made Paloma for us to drink. A paloma is a mix of tequila, grapefruit juice, and grapefruit soda. They were SO good that I started to change my tune about grapefruit flavors.

Are you surprised that it was a cocktail that got me to change my tune? 🤣

Then, last month I made a Salty Dog Cocktail, which is grapefruit with vodka and a salted rim. I had grapefruit juice leftover (I buy Simply Grapefruit Juice, but you can get your favorite brand) and did some googling to find out what I could make to use it up. One of the drink recipes I came across was a Seabreeze Cocktail, made with lime, cranberry, grapefruit, and vodka. I love all 4 of those things, plus the name “seabreeze” makes me think of the beach. I like the beach.

As I usually do, I turned a basic cocktail into a punch. I like to give directions for how to make a single cocktail, because hey, some days you just need a pick me up after work. But I’m betting that most people are making cocktails at a party and no one wants to be a bartender and mix drinks all night and miss out on all the fun.

Enter: Cocktail PUNCH recipes that water a crowd.

The mix of the grapefruit juice and cranberry is very refreshing. They’re both a bit tart but there is an underlying sweetness in the cranberry juice that adds a ton of flavor. I’m not a huge fan of overly sweet drinks so this is perfect for me. If you want to add a little sweetness, try using some lemon lime soda, or even adding a dash of simple syrup.

Not only does this drink taste good and refreshing, but it’s so pretty too. It makes me think of the beach and because it’s summer, I just want to be at one, sipping this cocktail and reading a book, don’t you?
