Another week, another cocktail! It’s finally Thursday, which means at this point, we’re all ready for a stiff drink. This week, we are sharing one of our best kept secrets; the Grapefruit Prosecco Cocktail, (guess it’s not really a secret anymore.) This delish beverage is perfect to enjoy throughout the summer months. Whether you’re hosting a crowd, or sitting back on the porch on a relaxing evening, this Grapefruit Prosecco Cocktail may just become your new drink of choice.
I love to serve cocktails in mason jars, especially during the summer months. I have this set of 12 (for $8!) from Target! Like all the best drinks, this recipe is made with Vodka and Prosecco, (have you sensed a theme yet?!) I prefer to use Tito’s Vodka, and LaMarca Prosecco; but you can use your favorite! I’ve made this drink with Cupcake Prosecco before, but in my opinion, it made it just a little bit too sweet.
Anyone who knows me, knows I have a serious addiction with all citrus fruit. Seriously I eat at least one orange or grapefruit every day. So anytime I can mix my cocktails with my favorite juicy fruit, I’m all for it. For this drink, I use a splash of Simply Grapefruit grapefruit juice in addition to freshly squeezed grapefruit. I’ve found that using just freshly squeezed grapefruit can make the drink too tart, (again, it all comes down to personal preference.)
Okay, enough rambling… time to get down to what’s important:
Recipe Yields: 2 cocktails
3 oz. Vodka (I use Tito’s)
3 oz. Simply Grapefruit, grapefruit juice
8 oz. Prosecco (I use LaMarca)
1/2 Grapefruit, to squeeze into drink
1/2 Grapefruit, cut into wedges as a garnish
3-4 Mint leaves, for garnish
Pour 1.5 oz. vodka and 1.5 oz. grapefruit juice into each glass.
Slowly add in Prosecco.
Top with a squeeze of fresh grapefruit.
Add mint leaves and a grapefruit wedge as a garnish.
Serve and enjoy!
