I guess people hate grapefruit because it's bitter and sour at the same time. I can drink water with some juice in it, but watching my resident Brit have an actual grapefruit for breakfast makes me run for the hills.
Don't google "why do people hate grapefruit?", it's a total rabbit hole.
It interacts with a number of common medications, so lots of people aren't allowed it. And it's quite distinctive so I guess a lot of people hate it
My boring drink routine - 1-2 cups of black coffee in the morning, and sparkling water the rest of the day. I'm trying to reduce the environmental impact of the sparkling water habit, since buying water in plastic bottles is not a sustainable thing to do, but I do like it...
We have a bar in our shared office, so at the end of the day we sometimes open that for gins and tonic, but not frequently.
...quite sweet with the right tartness. I love it. I always suspected the common habit of adding a spoonful of sugar atop a half grapefruit. I don't do it. But I only eat red grapefruits (1 dollar each at my local supermarket). Sometimes it's better than navel oranges.
