NOT Pink Grapefruit juice
NOT Pink Grapefruit Juice
Today will be short and sweet. Or rather, tart and sweet.
Cranberry tart and orange juice sweet.
Unless you count pink grapefruit cocktail, but you can’t count that because there isn’t any here.
But what if that’s just exactly what you want to drink and there isn’t any? Or what if you’re taking some kind of medication that won’t let you drink grapefruit juice?
You just want the taste. You make it from scratch. From nothing grapefruity at all.
Sometimes, during a flight, a passenger will ask for something really exotic. Like Fresca. Or pineapple juice. We’re a puddle jumper. The closest to exotic in our carts is Sprite Zero.
Another flight attendant showed me this and it tastes great. His recipe called for Sprite, but that’s too sweet to me. I’ve served it countless times and everyone agrees.
Here’s the recipe:
1 part orange juice
1 part cranberry juice cocktail
1/2 part tonic water
Pour over ice and swish around a bit.
If you add vodka you’ll have a Madras.
So add a little vodka and take off from work
*Medic Alert* Don’t be an idiot. If you’re taking any kind of meds, ask your doctor what you should drink or not before you try anything.
