  • ice cream maker
  • freezer


  • 3 cups freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup gin or vodka


  • In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup of the grapefruit juice with the sugar and corn syrup over low heat, stirring just until the sugar is fully dissolved.

  • Stir the sugar mixture into the remaining grapefruit juice, then stir in the gin or vodka. Chill the mixture thoroughly before proceeding.
  • Churn the sorbet according to the instructions from your ice cream maker's manufacturer OR pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze until solid.
