Is there a good off-season alternative to freshly squeezed grapefruit juice? “I like Trader Joe’s Rio Red Grapefruit blend,” says EdwardAdams. “It’s a bit on the sweet side but I’m addicted.” Lots of Chowhounds like Simply Grapefruit. “It is not so sour that it causes my eyes to squinch up, but not so sweet that I feel like I need a water chaser,” says Sal Vanilla. “It is most like freshly squeezed.” Noble Star Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice, usually found in the produce section, is a good bet, says kattyeyes, and BarmyFotheringayPhipps agrees. “This is the only grapefruit juice I’ve ever liked,” he says. “Although I should mention that I drink it with gin almost exclusively.”

One of the best uses of grapefruit juice is in a grapefruit margarita. kattyeyes makes hers with ruby red grapefruit juice, fresh lime, Patrón Citrónge, and tequila, and serves them with coarse vanilla sugar on the rim. foodnwine makes them with a silver tequila, lime juice, and Cointreau, with nothing on the rim.
