What Is In A Grapefruit Mimosa?
You don’t need anything too complicated to make this mimosa. With only two ingredients, it is easy and fun!
Of course, a champagne flute or coupe is a must but other than that, you don’t need anything special.
Here’s what goes in a Grapefruit Mimosa Cocktail:
Any sparkling wine works in a mimosa, you don’t have to be super extravagant and use expensive Champagne if you don’t want to.
I normally use either Cava or Prosecco in my mimosas. Cava is my sparkling wine of choice. It is from Spain and is very reasonably priced.
I used pink grapefruit juice in my mimosas as it is slightly sweeter than regular grapefruit juice but you can use any kind that you like.
I always end up using pink grapefruit juice because I love how it tastes in my Pink Paloma cocktail.
If you don’t like your cocktails too tart then you can use the sweetened juice instead of the plain kind.
Fresh Grapefruit Slices
Totally optional but a slice of fresh grapefruit is perfect for making this mimosa look amazing.
Grapefruit Mimosa Recipe: Directions

Virgin Grapefruit Mimosa
If you want to make this drink without alcohol, you can use club soda or sparkling water instead of champagne.
Enjoy the perfect breakfast cocktail with this Megosa - a grapefruit and Champagne cocktail.
