I am just going to go out on a limb here and say that this recipe might be the easiest and most un-recipe recipe that The Gourmet Gourmand has thus posted.
Are you capable of fresh-squeezing citrus juice? Are you capable of handing a bottle of chilled champagne to your significant other for opening? (because, let’s be real, that popping noise is highly startling, and certainly would result in an abruptly dropped and very messy state of affairs were I in charge of the uncorking).
If the answers to both of these questions is a resounding yes! read no further. All I ask is that you begin alcohol consumption immediately.If you need a little more information about how to make Pink Grapefruit Mimosas, read on.
I know brunching and Sunday Funday is all the rage right now. And you really can’t have a Sunday Funday without a mimosa in hand. But the traditional orange mimosas are just getting a little boring these days, and, in my opinion, boredom is the fuel of innovation. (Ahem, that’s probably not at all true). But let’s just get a bunch of pink grapefruits and move on…
(I just love pink cocktails, don’t you?)I also included rosé sparkling wine in this recipe (as dry as you can find), but you certainly could just use regular sparking wine/ champagne. It doesn’t significantly alter the taste.
For the grapefruit juice, I definitely recommend squeezing your own. And then make sure to taste it before adding the champagne. Depending on the season and the variety of grapefruit you might need to add just a little sugar or honey to cut the bitterness.
Next- grab champagne glasses, your friends, your wives, your husbands, or let’s be real- all you need is yourself and a good novel- and commence with the most festive of day-drinking cocktails.
Pink Grapefruit Mimosas
Oh its soooooooo pretty! 🙂 Its my birthday in a few weeks, and I have been on the hunt for something delicious to serve at my party. Thank you for the inspiration. PS: I am the same when it comes to opening a bottle of champagne, gets me every time.
LOL! Happy early birthday and I hope that someone gives you the gift of champagne and also agrees to be the bottle-opener 😉
Gorgeous photos and this is the best un-recipe recipe you have posted thus far. Maybe if I print this recipe out and leave it casually out and about my hubby will make this for me for breakfast. One can always hope. Just pinned!
Haha!!! Love it!! 🙂
These look fantastic, Sarah! My sister LOVES mimosas and has them almost every Sunday. I’ll definitely be sending this over to her!
Ahh! Thanks 🙂 Hope she likes!
