This would make a great ‘signature drink’ when your guests first arrive. Just ask if anyone is taking medication that prevents them having anything grapefruit and adjust something for them, without making a fuss.
- 2 cups fresh grapefruit juice (pink or red is preferred)
- 2 cups fresh orange juice
- 2 cups cranberry juice (I prefer the white cranberry juice – not so acidic)
- 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
- 4 cups chilled sparkling wine or mineral water for those not drinking.
- Orange zest for garnish
In a large pitcher, stir together the grapefruit, orange and cranberry juices. Rim each of 8 glasses with some lime and dip into sugar. Place 2-3 ice cubes in each glass .
Stir in the lime juice and divide equally among the glasses about 2/3 full and top with the sparkling wine. Garnish with an orange twist and make a toast. Wonderful!
Try using a Blanc de Blancs Brut (cheaper than the others) but certainly just as tasty.
