My Dad created this very "Special" beverage for the children in our family who all love and ask for it when ever they visit. It's made with Wink or generic grapefruit soda, OJ, and maraschino cherry juice over ice, topped off with a cherry. You could frappe the drink if you want. He also serves them in tall glasses. *Note: Cooking time is None.

Mmmm. This is a great way to drink grapefruit soda. I like that it cuts the tangyness just a bit but not totally. We also tried this with raspberry syrup instead of the cherry and it was just as good. Thanks

I made a whole pitcher of this as a NA option for a summer party. It was great. We used Grapefruit Italian soda that I found at Whole Foods, because it was the only grapefruit soda I could find. If you want it to be a little less bitter, use more orange juice and less grapefruit, but I liked it tart.
