What to do with grapefruit juice?

Hello all ~
I was given a bag of grapefruit at Christmas. I ate as many as I could and juiced the rest. I froze the juice and now would like to know if anyone has a recipe that uses the juice. I can always drink it, but thought there might be a yummy recipe out there that I could try. Any ideas?

Thanks for any help!

Kades posted an avocado salad that included grapefruit juice...someone was going to substitute grapefruit juice for key lime juice and make a grapefruit pie. Might search the threads for key lime and find that post--can't remember if it was Alix or ? Me--I drink it.

The first thing that comes to mind is Hollywood Derby's Grapefruit Cake:

I saw a recipe (at about.com ?) for lemonade ice cream pie. You might sub the lemonade with grapefruit juice.

It would be good in a marinade for chicken or fish. It would be good substituted for lemon juice in salad dressings.

Buon Giorno, Good Morning,

Ruby red grapefruit in season can be lovely just by itself and / or in a fruit and vegetable salad ... I like it with pomegranate seeds, rocket or arugula, peach, black berries, pineapple and / or mango & papaya ... Evoo and sea salt, and rasberry vinegar ...

I do not care for cooked or baked grapefruit at all.

Kind regards.
Margi.

Besides the obvious question of how did it come by its name...
after all, it ain't purple, (I know that all grapes ain't purple..just makin' a point)
it don't grow on a vine,
it don't grow in clusters like grapes,
it sure don't taste like grapes etc., etc.

Two words come to mind: Salty Dog
