Grapefruit and Sage Mimosa


A fun twist on the traditional mimosa, instead of using orange juice I chose to go with  ruby red grapefruit. I have also switched out the champagne with a rose and paired the citrus with sage.



A drink like this is one of the only ways you can acceptably drink in the mornings. It is the perfect way to start a relaxing Saturday or Sunday!




Grapefruit and Sage Mimosa

Ingredients:
Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice (Fresh squeezed if you can)
A sweet sparkling wine ( I used Rose, something like Asti Spumante would also be great!)
A few fresh sage leaves
A wedge of grapefruit for garnish

Directions:

Place a couple sage leaves (torn in half)  at the bottom of each serving glass, fill with ice.

Add about 2 ounces of grapefruit juice, and top off with sparkling wine. 

Serve with additional sage leaves and grapefruit wedge.

  1. I'm a huge mimosa fan, but I always add club soda in it, because I think the orange juice is too strong - but this is perfect, it solves my problem and I love grapefruit more anyway! Great recipe, thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks so much! I'm the same way.... not a huge fan of orange. It's a tad too sweet for me that way. Grapefruit is tart which is why I love it!

    1. Me too! I kinda love Rose... I don't typically admit that. Pink wines tend to be frowned upon.
