Howdy gang,

Whipping up a batch of Don's mix for Zombie consumption. I've made my cinnamon-infused sugar syrup, but what kind of grapefruit juice are you using? Red or white? I think red would be great for color. Just curious..

Rick

White grapefruit juice for sure.

Well, I guess I was a little late seeing an answer. I made my Don's mix with Ruby Red Grapefruit juice. I feel it came out really good. I love the cinnamon flavoring it brings out. Don was a genius for thinking up this mixture and Beachbum Berry was ever smarter for cracking the code.

Bottoms up...

The Bum insists upon white grapefruit, as he claims the pink and red are too sweet, but I've used the red in Don's mix #2 as well, and it doesn't seem to make a tremendous amount of difference unless you're using a pre-made cinnamon syrup that's very sweet to begin with.

So what is your cinnamon-infused sugar syrup recipe?

And has anyone had good results with pre-made cinnamon syrups (like maybe Fee Brothers)?

In Sippin' Safari (which I just got for my birthday)...I know I'm a little slow, The Bum suggests Starbucks cinnamon syrup...that is if you are too lazy to boil sugar and water. I went to my local Starbucks and now they only have Dulce Cinnamon, as the regular cinnamon syrup has been discontinued. I guess I will have to make it from scratch.

It is really easy to make, just follow the recipe. And it keeps real well in the frig. I made some a few months back and I am almost finished with it. It is great.

Has anyone seen white grapefruit in the store this year?

I can't find any place that sells them, including Mexican and Asian markets. I had a friend that was supplying me with very spicy white grapefruit from her tree, but not recently.

The markets have tons of inexpensive red grapefruit this season ('07-'08), which are OK substitutes. Any fresh squeezed grapefruit juice is better than bottled.

I even bought a pomelo, which smelled like white grapefruit on the outside, but the juice did not taste like white grapefruit. Not recommended as a substitute for white grapefruit!

Trader Joe's has fresh 80% of the time. But, you are correct, it's disappeared in supermarket chains. The canned Ocean Spray is sporadic at Stater Brothers and gone fromRalph's, Von's, and Albertson's.

Here in Florida I have always had trouble finding white graprefruits. Pink, yes. Red, yes. But white never. At least not in the chain grocery stores.

If anyone needs whites I have an incredible supply right now.

I will send them to you fresh picked through FedEx if you pay for shipping.

As many as you could want, from Rusty Key's grove. Organically grown.

BTW, bar owners. It will cost you free drinks at $1 per grapefruit off my tab whenever I show up at your place.
Other than that- have at it. They're falling off the trees right now and perfect.

Haven't had any trouble getting white grapefruit here in the Northwest at Fred Meyer (owned by Kroger).
