My sister and I came up with this one Easter, and it's been a tradition every since. You can make a simple syrup with white table sugar, but I find this version made with honey has been the best for bringing out the grapefruit. We make a batch of mimosas for the grown ups, and another for the kids by substituting either sparkling grape juice or club soda for the sparkling wine.

Ingredients

  • ½ c. honey
  • ½ c. water
  • ¼ c. tightly packed fresh mint leaves, torn and bruised
  • 2 large pink grapefruit, peeled, pith removed
  • 1 bottle prosecco, or other sparkling wine, chilled
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint, for garnish

Instructions

1

Make a simple syrup by combining the honey and water in a small saucepan set over medium heat. Add the mint leaves and stir to combine. Simmer, stirring frequently, until the honey is completely dissolved.

2

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and strain the syrup, discarding the mint leaves.

3

Place the peeled grapefruit in a high-speed blender and blend until completely liquefied, approximately 1 minute.

4

Fill four champagne flutes 1/3 full with the grapefruit puree and drizzle a spoonful of the honey-mint simple syrup into each glass. (Use more or less syrup according to taste). Stir briefly to combine, and then top off each glass with the chilled prosecco before serving. Cheers!
