in February via Citrus Sensation or with last month's pears in Crumbled Over.
For starters, grapefruits scream to be added to beverages. Whether it's a splash in your sparkling water or just a fresh squeezed glass of juice, there's no way to get it wrong: It revs up metabolism and is loaded with vitamin C. But, one way to take it to another level is to follow the Mexican tradition of the classic Paloma Cocktail (actually much better than a traditional margarita). Just follow this bit of direction (adapted/my version from Bon Appetit) and you will be on your way to bliss halfway through your first glass:
Pour some kosher salt on a plate. Rub half of rim of a highball glass with a grapefruit wedge; dip rim of glass in salt. Combine 1/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice, 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, and 1 teaspoon Truvia in glass; stir until dissolved. Stir in 1/4 cup Patron Reposado tequila, add ice, and top off with 1/4 cup club soda. Garnish with grapefruit wedge.
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
5 cups thinly sliced kale (center ribs and stems removed)
2 avocados, halved, pitted, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
