This recipe calls for the use of a concentrated liquid called bitters to give this particular Grapefruit Lemonade it’s distinctive grapefruit flavor.
Bitters are an ingredient of “olden times”, that have been consistently used in the bar industry forever for cocktails of many varieties.
Now getting a new breath of life in food culture around the world with new, bitters of fun flavors that take your taste buds for a swirl are the new “hotness”.
Anything tart, tangy & sweet makes me happy. Put that on ice! 😉
You may use fresh grapefruit in this recipe as well, but this is just another web chef idea for the real life cook…
