Grapefruit Spike

Bloody Marys can be hard to stomach after a rough night out; sparkling wine is more manageable for some. This bubbly concoction combines grapefruit juice, orange liqueur, and sparkling wine for a lighter take on a morning cocktail.

This recipe was featured in our New Year’s Day Brunch story.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine grapefruit juice and orange liqueur in a tall pitcher, and stir. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. 2To make the cocktail, add 3 ounces of the grapefruit mixture to each of 8 champagne glasses.
  3. 3Divide sparkling wine evenly among the glasses. Serve.
