Introducing the Rosemary Grapefruit Fizz: An easy to make, go-to cocktail with a little tartness, a little sweetness, and the perfect amount of bubbly.
So for the first time ever, I hosted my very first workshop last weekend. And for that very same workshop, I knew I wanted to bring along a signature cocktail. I spent a little time brainstorming, and after realizing that it would be best to bring something simple, I landed on this: The Rosemary Grapefruit Fizz. It’s got some freshness thanks to the rosemary; some sweetness, courtesy of the elderflower lemonade; and a little bit of tartness from the grapefruit juice.
It was a super easy cocktail to serve, because you know what? I didn’t even have to serve it! I put all of the ingredients out over ice, wrote down the instructions, and everyone whipped up their own. It’s essentially half a glass of grapefruit juice (freshly squeezed or store bought, either works!), and then equal parts elderflower lemonade (Belvoir is always a favorite brand), Pamplemousse, and champagne. Easy as pie!
Speaking of pie, this would be a fabulous cocktail to serve with dessert. It’s light, sweet, and so darn tasty. We enjoyed it with mini doughnuts à la Blackbird Doughnuts, and a mix of popcorn. Basically we ate like
kings QUEENS that day. Or you know…children. Sweets for breakfast are okay in moderation, that’s all I have to say about that.
If you’re looking for a cocktail for the holidays that you don’t constantly need to be shaking up in a tumbler or pouring out for guests, try one that guests can make on their own. It’s fun for guests, because they can make their own renditions if they’d like, or stick with the recommended signature cocktail.
