Note: Few foods are cleaner-tasting than this grapefruit ice, which Times Test Kitchen Director Donna Deane developed for an early January cover story on low-fat cooking. After so many turkeys and rich holiday desserts, this recipe became an early favorite of ours. It not only tastes great, it also has a beautiful pink hue. The amount of sugar will vary according to the sweetness of the grapefruit--some people love it without any sugar. The ice is best when served slightly slushy.
2 cups pink grapefruit juice (about 3 grapefruit)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier
1 tablespoon lime juice
Combine grapefruit juice, sugar, Grand Marnier and lime juice. Freeze in ice cream freezer according to manufacturer's directions. Spoon into chilled glass dishes, cover and freeze until serving time.
