Ruby Red Grapefruit Mimosas

August is a pretty momentous month around our house. In Florida, it means back to school for my boys. (I’m still in a wee bit of denial that I have two high schoolers this year – eek!) It is also my birthday month!! Insert confetti, jazz hands and all manner of fun things … I seriously LOVE birthdays!

I have recently realized that National Prosecco Day also falls in August. Coincidence?! I think not 😉 In light of all the fun August has to offer, I think we should cue the celebration and a round of these pretty pinkish cocktails:

With just 2 ingredients, these Ruby Red Grapefruit Mimosas will be the life of every pool party, girls day and brunch!

What is a Mimosa?

A mimosa is a cocktail that is a blend of citrus juice and sparkling wine. More often than not, mimosas are made with orange juice, which is both delicious and a little expected.

These Ruby Red Grapefruit Mimosas aren’t just any ol’ mimosas. These mimosas have big fizz, big flavor and big color! BUT, with only 2 ingredients (3 if you count the optional but oh-so-pretty grapefruit garnishes), they are easy to serve by the pitcher or the glass:

  • Ruby red grapefruit juice
  • Prosecco

How to Serve Grapefruit Mimosas

To serve these mimosas, I poured ruby red grapefruit juice in a pitcher and added frozen slices of ruby red grapefruit. The frozen slices keep the juice cold without diluting the sweet, slightly bitter flavor.

Next up is the Prosecco. Oh, sweet, bubbly glorious Prosecco. The Italian answer to sparkling wine. Affordable. Approachable. Slightly sweet, effervescent and the perfect way to be Italian for the Summer. Or at least brunch 😉

For this simple but stylish cocktail, garnish a glass with a grapefruit wedge. Summer is laid back, so don’t panic if you don’t have flutes to serve these in … stemless wine glasses work just as well. Add one part ruby red grapefruit juice to one part Prosecco.

  1. Have never had a Mimosa in my life so have no idea what to expect. These look/sound like something would love to try.
    My usual go-to drink is usually a Margarita frozen. Been long time since I had one.
    Not supposed to drink while taking meds so have curbed my drinking, getting old really isn’t fun.
    Would still like to try one of these Mimosa’s however.
    Have great week.
    Know how you feel about kids in high school. We had 3 teenagers at once, gah.
