Grapefruit Champagne Cocktail

Happy Hour: Grapefruit-Elderflower Sparkler

If you're not a fan of overly sweet cocktails, this sparkler's for you. Grapefruit provides a tangy base without the accompanying fructose, and Rosé bubbly deepens the drink's blush-colored hue. Round out any of the fruit's bitterness with elderflower liqueur, which adds a dreamy, floral flavor. Top it off with a grapefruit twist garnish to perfume the cocktail with the Winter fruit's essential oils. Learn how to make a grapefruit mimosa.
