Mint Grapefruit Mimosas

My Mom and I used to go to a lot of Sunday brunches. Many of them would include a Mimosa, which is considered a traditional brunch beverage. It’s light and refreshing and pairs with all sorts of different breakfast, lunch and brunch foods.

When most people think of Mimosas they think of a beverage made with champagne and orange juice. Today I’m sharing another variation of Mimosa, a Mint Grapefruit Mimosa.

The Mint Grapefruit Mimosa is a perfect choice for a beverage to serve for brunch on a holiday or special occasion. This Mimosa has a different taste, having the sweet yet tart taste of grapefruit and the slight zing of mint.

If you’d like to make this Mimosa alcohol-free, just use sparkling grape juice, sparkling apple juice or club soda in place of the Prosecco.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4

Tip

You can substitute sparkling grape juice or club soda for alcohol-free version.

Equipment Needed

Ingredients

  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup 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

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.

Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for another 5 minutes.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and strain the syrup, discarding the mint leaves.

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

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!
