From perk up to pucker up this is a great start for any morning ritual.  Turn on the broiler if you want a break from the ordinary.  Grapefruit halves are a busy morning classic, but take a few extra minutes and broiling will caramelize the fruit itself and the sugars you choose will compliment the fruits inherent bitterness and bring a unique sweet-smoky flavor to your morning…Hello Sunshine!

Glazed Grapefruit with Ruby Red Grapefruit & Hibiscus Sugar

3 grapefruit

6 teaspoons honey

3 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon Ruby Pink Grapefruit and Hibiscus Sugar (we used La Bella Terre sugar)

Preheat the broiler

  1. Cut each grapefruit in half and loosen sections from the membrane with a small paring knife.
  2. Place the grapefruit halves cut side up on a baking sheet or a muffin pan.  Drizzle 1 teaspoon of honey over each half and sprinkle evenly with the brown sugar and grapefruit hibiscus sugar.
  3. Place grapefruit under broiler and brown well, about 3 minutes.  Remove grapefruit and serve warm.

We hope you enjoyed Zucchini Week last week.  If you didn’t get a chance to read those posts, go check them out here.  We are going to start this week off with a bang!  We really hope you don’t have to wait until the weekend to try this drink.  We already loved Prosecco and with the addition of Violette Liqueur its divine!  Here is what you need:

4 oz Prosecco

1/2 oz Creme de Violette

Lavender sugar

LemonModernDrinks-18

With the lemon, wet the edge of the glass.  Gently roll the wet edge in the lavender sugar.  Careful not to get inside the glass.  Add 1/2 oz of Creme de Violette and top with Prosecco.How easy was that?!  You can use unflavored sugar if you can’t find lavender sugar.  You don’t want to use regular table sugar with this.  Look for fine sugar, not powdered, just fine grain sugar.  Prosecco is sweeter than Champagne but Champagne would work as well.  We love Cupcake Vineyards Prosecco.

Thank you for join us again!  We would love to connect with you here.  So leave us a comment or connect with us on Facebook.  Happy Monday!
