Mint Grapefruit Mimosa Ingredients:

  • ½ c. honey
  • ½ c. water
  • ¼ c. tightly packed fresh mint leaves, torn and bruised
  • 2 large pink grapefruit, peeled, pith removed
  • 1 bottle prosecco or other sparkling wine, chilled
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint, for garnish

You’ll find these kitchen tools useful (I've included affiliate links to the products I use at home):

  • Blender – I’m currently loving the Mealthy Handblend, the chopper worked great for quickly making grapefruit juice and all the parts can go in the dishwasher!
  • Champagne flutes – head to the dollar store, or order them online, for the best prices on champagne flutes.

Mint Grapefruit Mimosa Directions:

  1. Make a simple syrup by combining the honey and water in a small saucepan set over medium heat. Add the mint leaves and stir to combine. Simmer, stirring frequently, until the honey is completely dissolved.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and strain the syrup, discarding the mint leaves.
  3. Place the peeled grapefruit in a high-speed blender and blend until completely liquefied, approximately 1 minute.
  4. Fill four champagne flutes 1/3 full with the grapefruit puree and drizzle a spoonful of the honey-mint simple syrup into each glass. (Use more or less syrup according to taste). Stir briefly to combine, and then top off each glass with the chilled prosecco before serving. Cheers!

This mimosa is a great addition to any brunch spread!  We hope you enjoy this Mint Grapefruit Mimosa as much as I enjoyed taste-testing it!

If you like the mint flavor of this cocktail our Dark Cherry and Mint Fizz or Watermelon Mint Lemonade are great summertime beverages too!
