One of my favorite ways to preserve citrus is by making boozy concoctions because the alcohol really captures the essence of the citrus fruit flavor. This is similar to Triple Sec, but so much cooler. And there is a cocktail recipe!
Grapefruit makes amazing liqueur. This grapefruit honey liqueur is sweet, tart and bitter all rolled into one, making it perfect cocktail material. I’ve also included a variation on the Salty Dog cocktail recipe to turn up the grapefruit to 11!
Grapefruit infused gin is a favorite libation at my house. It only takes two ingredients and you can make it in 15 minutes. Preserve them while the fruit is sweet, flavorful and acidic, as citrus quality wanes over time.
