This pink grapefruit lemonade adds a bitter, but pleasant, aftertaste to a classic beverage. While the recipe is non-alcoholic, you can add a touch of vodka to turn the old-fashioned lemonade into a refreshing cocktail.

To make, squeeze the juice of two pink organic grapefruits into a bowl. Filter the liquid into a pitcher using a strainer. Next, stir in sugar and cold water. The recipe suggests a third of a cup of grapefruit juice and two thirds of a cup of water, but it's ultimately based on personal preference. Pour into a ice-filled glass and garnish with a sprig of mint to serve.

The pink grapefruit adds a fruity, tropical dimension to lemonade, making it the perfect beverage for weathering those stifling hot days.
