I had two white grapefruit left from my shipment of last winter (ordered from Florida). Neither looked rotten. I took the most wizened one and cut it open. There was a baby grapefruit tree inside. Sadly I did not think it would appreciate being planted in New Jersey in the fall.
The flesh though yielded juice. Juice that the poor baby tree had been peeing in. The juice smelled wonderful so I drank some. Deep, round flavor -- not too sweet, not too bitter, not too sour. Perhaps the most delightful juice I can recall.
I made up a zombie. I used all the juice. There was also a slight excess of lime juice, but otherwise a strictly followed recipe. Mint plus a purple straw. I cannot remember a better zombie. Though, in truth, zombies are sometimes hard to remember.
