Easy to make and tastes great. I skipped the vodka and only had one grapefruit which was a little short of two cups of juice so I added some lemon and lime juice. When boiling the sugar water I added some grated rind from the grapefruit and some honey (which probably wasn t a great idea the honey flavor was a little overpowering). But overall it was delicious and I m sure the recipe is great with no changes. Also I don t have an ice cream maker so I blended it in a blender froze it until solid blended it again and froze it again and it turned out fine so it can even be made easily without an ice cream maker Read More
