Grapefruit Wonderfizz…


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
6slices grapefruit
6sprigs mint
1bottle brut/ prosecco/

  1. Arrange the slices of grapefruit on the flute walls.
  2. Add the grapefruit juice just about half of the flute. Top the grapefruit juice with a splash of Chenin Blanc
  3. Top the flutes with brut. add a sprig of mint on top.
  4. Clink glasses and enjoy.

All the light we cannot see –
The complete poetry – Maya Angelou only for the most wonderful poem on women.

“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.
I say,
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

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me. “

– Maya Angelou

Happy International Woman’s Day
