"Two words come to mind: Salty Dog"

In the Elmore Leonard novel Swag, the Salty Dog is the preferred drink of honest and hard-working career criminals Frank Ryan and Ernest Stickley, Jr. -- wikipedia

Thank you, everyone! I love the idea of Hollywood Derby Grapefruit cake as well as a substitute in key lime pie. I will definitely use some in salad dressings and wherever I can substitute it for lemon! I appreciate all your help! You guys are great!

AND ..... Hoot, you're a "HOOT"!!!

Thanks, Whiskadoodle, I've always wanted to know what career criminals drink! I think I'll make myself a "Salty Dog" and go check out the local bank!?!

You're very welcome, Shelly. Since you've eaten the grapefruits (Post #1), you can use the juice for the frosting, in a souffle or cocktail. ;-)

Hoot, I like your suggestion! First thing that came to my mind was a grapefruit margherita (I always get the spelling on that incorrect!)

Grapefruit curd, subbing grapefruit juice for the lemon. Princess Fiona's lemon curd recipe is excellent, I subbed lime.

And grapefruit margs and salty dogs, + 1! A Seabreeze is nice too, GF juice, cranberry juice, and vodka.

How about subbing grapefruit juice for lemon or lime in a salad dressing. This looks interesting. 1 pint of sour cream,juice of 1 lemon try using grapefruit instead. 2 tea. dill. I'd add 1 Tab. brown sugar
Or Mash 2 avocados til smooth, add grapefruit juice about 2 tab. add 1 tab. mayo, salt and pepper 1 tea. grated onion, 1 tea. sugar. to taste.3/4 cup salad oil 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar. Mix well Put you salad in seperate bowl,blend salad oil with the balsamic vinegar. Stir it into the avocado mix serve over peeled and sliced tomatoes or toss with the greens or a seafood salad. enjoy

it sure don't taste like grapes etc., etc.

Two words come to mind: Salty Dog
It does grow in clusters like grapes. Hence it's name...GRAPEfruit.
