Two: The elegant combination of the grapefruit color, mint, and floral garnish screams, "Serve me at your next event!"
You are curious about the recipe now, aren't you? We will not make you wait anymore. Below are the ingredients you are going to need.
What you need:
- One bottle of champagne
- One bottle of grapefruit juice
- Fresh mint leaves
- Dianthus for floral garnish - be sure to use organic flowers that have not been sprayed with pesticides.
To make this perfection, you need to:
Grab a stemless champagne flute and add the fresh mint leaves to it. Then crush the leaves with a muddler.
Can't seem to find a muddler? Go ahead and use a wooden spoon!
After the mint leaves are muddled, pour the champagne of your choice and fill the flute halfway.
Then top off with the grapefruit juice.
Now that the delightful Grapefruit mint mimosa is ready, you can garnish it with edible flowers and serve it.
Grapefruit Mint Mimosa Tips
If you fancy this refreshing drink cold, you can chill the grapefruit juice before using it. Can you add ice to the mimosa? Nope! Absolutely not recommended. We don't want to dilute this perfection with ice. If you are unsatisfied with the coolness of the grapefruit juice alone, you can chill the champagne using a wine basket! Keep in mind to replenish the ice basket, folks.
How to Serve Grapefruit Mint Mimosa?
Although we gave you the recipe, we didn't tell you how many drinks you can serve, did we?
Stemless champagne flutes are 9 oz versus standard champagne flutes of 5 oz. If you are also using the same stemless flutes that we used, this recipe will make six divine mimosas you can enjoy!
Couldn't come across Dianthus? Not to worry, you can use other commonly used edible flowers, such as lavender, orchid, and nasturtium, to garnish your drinks. If you are tired of the typical flowers, you can use bee balm flowers, linden, clover, or fuchsia as garnish. When you use flowers as garnish for any drinks or food, it is essential to ensure they are food-grade and free from pesticides. And if you are allergic to the recommended flowers, don't use them!
You can use cremant, prosecco, or cava in making the mimosas. There's no need to use expensive high-end champagne to make this drink when the delicious grapefruit juice masks any unpleasant taste you are worried about when using inexpensive champagne.
We want to let you know what we think is best when served with our lovely grapefruit mint mimosas. Cheese and bacon Quiché, Huevos rancheros, frittata, fresh fruit with yogurt, and mini bagels are some side dishes that will surely please you and your guests. When these yummy side dishes are served on either our disposable dinner party plates or fancy disposable dinnerware sets, along with the mimosas, you will have aesthetic photos to post on your social media!
We understand some of you are not fans of flowers in their drinks. You can garnish your yummy drinks with rosemary, thyme, small chunks of grapefruit, raspberries, or small slices of strawberries.
You can freeze the raspberries and strawberries used to garnish beforehand to keep the grapefruit mint mimosa cool. For the adventurous souls who fancy a bit of spiciness in their grapefruit mimosas, we suggest you infuse your drink with pieces of jalapeños for that extra kick of spiciness.
We have a trick up our sleeves for those who strong love their drinks. Replace the champagne with Tequila! Make sure to add small amounts of honey and lime juice too.
