Gonzo Grapefruit

Total Time:

Yield:
4 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 whole grapefruits (pink if available), halved
  • 4 ounces vodka (strictly optional, but you know that Hunter S. Thompson would have it this way)
  • 6 teaspoons brown sugar
Directions
  • Set 1 oven rack on the highest level, then preheat broiler.

  • Using a small serrated knife, cut around grapefruit to separate the fruit from the skin and the segments from each other (just like your mother did for you). Pour out a bit of the grapefruit juice to make room for the vodka.

  • Drizzle 1 ounce of vodka over each grapefruit half and let it seep between the slices (I doubt your mother did this for you).

  • Immediately before broiling, sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar over the top of each grapefruit half.

  • Place grapefruit directly on rack under the broiler and broil for 3 minutes. Garnish with a raspberry or strawberry, if available. Serve immediately.
