I was at a new grocery store last weekend couldn’t pass up the delicious looking fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice on display — and being the healthy gal that I am, immediately started thinking about which liquor I should mix it with. The debate concluded with a tie, gin and champagne — and the Grapefruit Gin Fizz was born. Ready for this recipe? Start with 2 oz of gin over ice, add 6 oz of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, top with a splash of St Germain and finish with a champagne float and garnish with a slice of fresh grapefruit. Striped straws are optional, but highly recommended (and let’s talk about how cute my new straw dispenser is — an amazing wedding gift from a cousin that knows me really well.) Bottom’s up, it’s Friday!
What’s a champagne float?
Yum yum yum! Grapefruit is so refreshing! Craig just ordered us a bar cart, so this might need to be our first drink off of it!
Alison — A champagne float means topping the drink off with champagne to fill up the rest of the glass! (I should have just said that, sorry!)
I dont love gin, but the rest of whats in this drink makes me really want to try it- cheers to Friday!
Lindsey — I’m not usually much of a gin girl either, but this one changed my mind!
Also, girl, tell a sistah where I can get that Sofia wine because NO WHERE BY ME HAS IT AND I WANT IT.
Hooray! I was looking forward to the straw dispensers debut! 🙂 Enjoy <3
