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
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
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.
