After renovating my backyard to make room for my quarantine hobbies, I found the perfect summer cocktail to go with it. The ingredients: champagne and grapefruit are somewhat healthy (as healthy as alcohol can be), and delicious. Plus it’s the ultimate cocktail for summer weekends. Throw in a few games and the party is just getting started. Cheers to kicking off the summer with a little fun in the sun, yummy refreshers and movie nights in the backyard.
Fresh pink grapefruit
Fresh sage leaves
Champagne (substitute sparkling white wine, or sparkling water for nonalcoholic)
- For a single cocktail, vigorously shake 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) fresh grapefruit juice, 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) of fresh lime juice and fresh sage leaves in a shaker with ice. Strain into a glass with fresh ice. Top with about 1/2 cup of champagne. Garnish with fresh sage leaves, if desired. Serve immediately.
