Grandma Merle Briggs Fruit Appetizer

1 c. sugar
1 c. water
1 can crushed pineapple
1 can grapefruit sections and juice (found in the canned fruit section)
1 small bottle maraschino cherries (drained)

Ginger ale, chilled

Combine sugar and water in a saucepan. Boil and cool. Cut grapefruit, pineapple and cherries into small pieces and add to sugar water mixture. Freeze to slush. Spoon fruit into decorative glasses and pour chilled ginger ale over the top.

This dish was a Christmas tradition. I remember going over to Grandma Briggs house for Christmas breakfast. I couldn't wait for the "grapefruit slush" to be served. Enjoy!
