The Only Summer Jam You Need This Year Is Grapefruit Marmalade
It’s summertime! And I don’t care how hot it is, sometimes I just want to dance…with joy after eating a big scoop of grapefruit marmalade. It’s a little bit sweet and incredibly bitter, just like my meemaw who taught me the recipe. This summer jam can be enjoyed in all your favorite summer spots.
Nothing feels better on a hot summer day than lounging by the pool in your cutest maillot. But it’s important to set the mood; we love to go retro by bringing out a boombox, setting it on a pool chair, and covering it with jars of delicious grapefruit marmalade. Your pool party guests will simply adore sampling everything from delicate, finely grated champagne peel marmalade to a robust citrus chunkfest. Playing Lizzo’s “Boys” would just distract your guests from fully enjoying your selection of delicious grapefruit marmalades! For an extra special touch, provide each of your guests with a personalized silver spoon for plunging straight into the marm jar.
And remember, marmalade’s not just for eating! Ditch the coconut oil and transform into a citrus queen by slathering your body in decadent marmalade. It’s the bees knees, and by that we mean that you will 100% be covered in bees. Also you will probably piss off whoever cleans your pool. Sorry, Marco! Beauty is pain. Your pain!
ON THE PORCH
A porch is the perfect place to enjoy the only summer jam you’ll ever need: grapefruit marmalade! Head outside at sunset to watch the fireflies. Grab a mason jar, fill it with iced tea, pour that iced tea out on the ground, and re-fill that mason jar with lip-smacking grapefruit marmalade. Sure, you might think a summer evening is the perfect time to enjoy Post Malone’s “Psycho” (featuring Ty Dolla $ign). But you’d be wrong! The only smooth chill sweetness you need is a dollop of refrigerated grapefruit marmalade on some vanilla ice cream. You can also use it in fly traps.
If you’re throwing the kind of breezy, sunset party that only happens in beer commercials, Drake’s “Nice For What” might seem like a good choice. But it’s not. The only thing you need to throw an absolute banger is grapefruit marmalade! Toast up a nice ancient grains bread, cut it into festive shapes, and serve it to your guests absolutely dripping with that ruby red mar-mar. Grapefruit marmalade is great paired with craft cocktails or just a spoon. If your guests want to dance, they can do it to the sounds of toast crunching and jam slurping. Pretty soon you’ll have your guests saying, “Wait, you don’t have ANYTHING to eat or drink other than jars full of grapefruit marmalade? This is weird, even for you.” MMMMMmmmmmalade!
SEX ON THE BEACH
It’s more than a drink, it’s also an uncomfortable physical experience. If you’re about to make the beast with two salt-kissed, sandy backs, you may think you need to use your portable speakers to play Janelle Monae’s “Pynk,” or even Janelle Monae’s “Make Me Feel”. But nothing could be further from the truth. The only thing you need to spice up a little “afternoon delight and/or exfoliation” is a full jar of grapefruit marmalade. Marmalade will give you the sugar rush you need to pound it out amidst the dead crabs and jellyfish. You can take turns feeding each other big old spoonfuls of delicious citrus jam, or, if you’re feeling really naughty, you can go ahead and lick it straight out of the jar. It’s a great warmup for your tongue. Try not to get any marmalade inside you, though. That’s where the sand goes, silly.
