Are you one of those people that likes your drinks a little sour or a little tart? Sweet is great, but sometimes we just want something with a little tang. When I was younger, I used to hate how sour grapefruit juice was, but as I got older, I grew fonder of it. These Grapefruit Alcoholic Drinks are just what your tastebuds are craving!

Grapefruit Medication Interactions
If you are taking any medications, you may want to make sure the grapefruit won’t interact with them before consuming these drinks. According to research from CMAJ, there are more than 85 medications that can interact with the fruit. The list of drugs found to interact include anti-cancer agents, anti-nausea pills, anti-infection drugs, and especially anti-depressant medication.
Basically, grapefruit, grapefruit juice, and other citrus fruits contain something called furanocoumarins. This is a type of chemical that effects the metabolism of the drug you are taking which effects the enzyme our body uses to break down antidepressants.
Drinking or eating in small amounts will not cause devastating results, however, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.
