This is the season of colour, spring is knocking on our door and what we have is the festival of colour on our doorstep. And if you are as big a procrastinator as me then this recipe will suit you. I depend on great ingredient quality which then makes simple recipes stand out. In this situation the great ingredient is grapefruit.
So a great fruit is showcased in this beautiful peachy pink cocktail. Its my take on a mimosa where I have used a late harvest Chenin Blanc to sweeten the grapefruit juice and topped with a brut. Simple elegant and easy drinking.
300ml grapefruit juice
100ml late harvest
1bottle brut/ prosecco/
- Arrange the slices of grapefruit on the flute walls.
- Add the grapefruit juice just about half of the flute. Top the grapefruit juice with a splash of Chenin Blanc
- Top the flutes with brut. add a sprig of mint on top.
- Clink glasses and enjoy.

“I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
That’s me. “
– Maya Angelou
