  • 3 small pink grapefruits , or 2 large
  • 5- inch length of cucumber , peeled and chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4 teaspoon rose water , or to taste
  • Sweetener of choice (such as maple syrup or honey), optional, to taste
  • 4 to 5 ice cubes


  1. Remove the skin, seeds, and membranes of the grapefruits (the membranes can be very bitter, so make sure to remove them as best as possible). You should have about 2 cups of peeled grapefruit sections.
  2. Starting with the grapefruit, place the cucumber, rose water, ice, and sweetener in a blender. Blend on high until fully incorporated. Taste, and add more rose water if desired. If it tastes slightly bitter (grapefruits may vary in their sweetness), you can add a few drops of sweetener and blend to mix.
