2 cup sugar (I have cut it back to 1 cup and think you can taste the grapefruit flavor more)
2 cups water
2 cans grapefruit with juices/syrup (another reason to cut back on the sugar) *remove the seeds**I love to use Red Ruby grapefruit, but any will do.
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
Maraschino Cherries (optional) We cut these in half and blot on paper towel add as many as desired.
Blend grapefruit in blender. Combine with all other in ingredients freezer safe container and stir until well mixed. (I personally like to heat the sugar and water together until I know the sugar is dissolved) Freeze well. Serve with sprite or 7-up.
