    Angry grape juice is from grapes or grape fruit

    Hello, I am translating a text from UK English and there is an expression "grape juice". What do you understand it to be? A juice made from grape vine or from grape fruit?
    Thanks, Marketa.

    Re: grape juice is from grapes or grape fruit

    Grape juice is made from grapes. Grapefruit juice (and yes, some people are brave enough to drink it*) comes from grapefruits.




    *Maybe it's just me, but even thinking about drinking that very tart grapefruit juice makes my cheeks pucker and my face contort.
