This was a lovely summer surprise. The tang of the grapefruit complemented the sweetness of the pineapple. I used the bourbon and while you didn't taste the bourbon too much, the flavors balanced well. The ginger ale gives it just the sparkle it needed for a hot summer day. Made for Culinary Quest 2014!

This is a very good drink. The flavors are great together. I followed the ingredients except for the bourbon. I really like the way that you have the option of making the drink w/o the alcohol. Made for Photo Tag.
Grapefruit juice is not my favorite but this recipe sounded so good I had to give it a try. I loved it! When putting the garnish together I did not use the grapefruit wedge and added an extra wedge of lime. Since DD is pregnant I did not add the bourban to the pitcher just to the glasses. She enjoyed her's without the alcohol too! Thank you Baby Kato for posting this recipe.
