You won't believe how good this is. Buy the grapefruit in refrigerated jars in your market's produce section.

Editor's Note:

To use fresh grapefruit, follow Chef John's tips for making "supremes": cutting the fruit into beautiful pith-free segments.

Terry's right you won't believe how good this is! Obviously you have to be a grapefruit lover to enjoy this and that I am! I used the sectioned mixed grapefruit that was recommended and it took less than 5 minutes to put this together. If you do the math 3 oz. gin per 8 serving dishes comes out to a generous 2 tsp. not one. You could get away with buying one mini-bottle of gin for this recipe or add the extra to each salad that's what I did and it wasn't strong at all. Luckily for me I'm the only one in the house who appreciates grapefruit so this salad was all mine! Read More
