grapefruit + honey soda

today we made grapefruit soda, it's so delicious and simple and everyone enjoys it.

3 grapefruit 
1 tablespoon manuka honey
1/2 cup boiling water
soda or sparkling water

1.Juice grapefruit and strain. 
2. Dissolve honey in the boiling water, add to juice. 
3. Fill 1/3 of a glass with juice and top up with soda.

For the last couple of years I have received a large bag of grapefruit care of Mima's Grannie's grapefruit tree. She isn't all that fond of grapefruit so every year when they ripen they get stripped from the tree and given away. There's something I really love about grapefruit, I remember as a kid dad would give them to us for breakfast sprinkled with brown sugar and grilled for a few minutes.
I still have stores in the pantry of last years batch of marmalade (photo below). This year grapefruit and honey soda will suffice.
