Grapefruit Lime Fizz

Grapefruit Lime Fizz-12

Grapefruit cocktails have become my go-to summertime drink. They are light, fruity, and refreshing, without being overly sweet. On a recent Friday I tackled the task of creating my own grapefruit cocktail and ended up with this Grapefruit Lime Fizz. It’s made with freshly squeezed grapefruit and lime juices, a dash of simple syrup to add sweetness, plus gin and tonic water. It’s a slightly sweet and effervescent cocktail, and the perfect way to jump start your weekend.

This cocktail can be prepared in just a couple of minutes, and it uses few ingredients – some of which you might already have at home. While I used fresh grapefruit and lime, you could by grapefruit and lime juice to create an easy timesaving shortcut. I made cocktails for two, you could adjust this recipe to make it for a crowd. It’s the type of cocktail that can be made ahead of time, just add the ice at the last minute before guests arrive. The pretty pink color would make it a fun cocktail to serve at a bridal shower, and it would look beautiful displayed in a drink dispenser.

I love how the sweetness balances with the bitter and sour flavors of the grapefruit. And I feel like since it does have fresh fruit juice, it’s a little healthier than other cocktails… right?
