This refreshing Pink Grapefruit Mimosa recipe can be a cocktail or a mocktail

Ultimate Grapefruit Mimosas

Citrus + Sweet + Bubbly = Perfection

Whether you’re taking part in Dry January or want to upgrade your mimosas, you’re going to love this Ultimate Grapefruit Mimosa Cocktail/Mocktail combo!

Ultimate Grapefruit Mimosa Cocktail/Mocktail recipe

Classic mimosas can get a little drab. I blame cheap champagne and $5 Sunday brunch drink specials. But this ultimate grapefruit mimosa recipe blends a delicious combo of citrus juices and bubbly Prosecco to create one awesome cocktail.

Prosecco is a step above champagne in my opinion. For me, the Prosecco creates the “ultimate” part of this ultimate grapefruit mimosa recipe, but by all means, if you don’t like Prosecco, use a dry champagne instead.

I like to keep things on the lighter side at the beginning of the year, so using freshly squeezed juices is a must in my cocktails! Store bought juice can be loaded with added sugar and calories that I don’t need in my life. And instead of simple syrup, I used honey as a sweetener for this cocktail recipe.

Dry January is dumb! There I said it. By February folks are back to drinking regularly, so it kind of kills any weight loss gains they would have made by cutting out alcohol entirely. Low-calorie cocktails, like this grapefruit mimosa, are a great option for folks watching their waistline.

But for those practicing alcohol abstinence this month, don’t despair! This Ultimate Grapefruit Mimosa recipe can be crafted as a cocktail-mocktail blend. Much like our Grapefruit Margarita recipe, this grapefruit mockmosa uses San Pellegrino, an Italian sparkling mineral water, as the bubbly essence of this mocktail.
