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.

Mix up this recipe for Ultimate Grapefruit Mimosas!
