I made this into a blended drink, just throwing the ingredients into the blender and pulsing until it was uniform. I did use 4 large frozen strawberries as mine were not sliced. VERY good. I think I'd add a couple more strawberries next time.

This sounded really good so I decided to make it for our annual july 4th bash. So, after buying enough ingrediants to serve 40 people, my hubby and I decided to taste test it before hand--Good thing we did, because it wasn't what we were expecting at all. I think the grapefruit juice made it too sour or something. Even after I added more strawberries, I still didn't care for it. Keep looking.

Loved this drink! I purchased some Cruzan coconut rum on a recent trip to St. Thomas so thought this would be a perfect use. I chose to blend all of the ingredients and make a slushy drink...used frozen grapefruit sections instead of juice. Also added about a tblsp of white sugar. Couldn't resist taking a photo of this drink on a Caribbean-blue napkin!

This combination made for a very tasty summertime drink as is -- but I enjoyed it with a few adjustments. I skipped blending the strawberries and served it over ice with a cherry. The grapefruit juice gives it a great tang. Also good made with a grapefruit/lemonade combination. We loved it in winter - can't wait to enjoy it on the patio this summer!

i liked this recipe. except i substituted cream of coconut, or coconut milk, or coconut water for the rum, to make a non- alcoholic version kids will love. you can also make it into a sorbet if you know how.

This is fantastic! I doubled the juices so the drink wasn't too strong and we loved it! Favorite new cocktail that we tried on our vacation to the Oregon coast.
