Pink and Red grapefruit also contain Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, which may help prevent certain types of cancer, heart disease and stroke.

  4. I had no idea that this month was national grapefruit month! It's citrus season here in Arizona so we are overflowing with all kinds of citrus, including grapefruit. I love the cocktail idea-going to have to give that one a spin. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I love grapefruit as a flavor and a fragrance, but I cannot stand to eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice. Not sure about the grapefruit beverage. Stopping by from SITS comment love.
