Grapefruit Citrus Ginger Juice

Grapefruit is one of those fruits that can instantly wake you up with its brightness. Perfect for those hard-to-wake-up mornings. I squeezed a little lime and lemon in this juice combo to kick it up a bit. It ended up making the perfect morning juice blend. A little fresh ginger made it that much more.

I think next time I’ll scale back on the sugar and instead give this juice a big fresh squeeze of orange juice.

Juice from 2 grapefruits

Juice from 2 limes

Juice from 1/2 a lemon

2 tablespoons fresh ginger juice

4 tablespoons of sugar, or agave syrup

1 cup water

DirectionsThe best way I get the juice from fresh ginger is by grating it fine and squeezing the pulp, ringing out the juice.

In a sauce pan, bring water, sugar and ginger to a simmer for about 5 minutes, or until sugar has dissolved. Let it cool.

In a pitcher, combine ginger-sugar water with grapefruit, lemon and lime juice and mix until combined. Add more sugar for taste.

    Be Aware that if you are taking some types of tablets, drinking grapefruit juice will cause them to act differently – to the point of allowing painkillers to pass into the system in large doses – which would otherwise take a time release method – and may result in overdoses and/or complications – just thought I should note that, as this is a great drink, but made me very ill :(
