Refreshing Grapefruit Mocktail

Friday, June 28, 2019
Summer time means relaxing outdoors, soaking up some sun, and drinking a nice cold refreshing beverage. The summers here in Charleston are extremely hot so having a drink that will quinch your thirst and cool you down is super important. I dabbled in creating a refreshing grapefruit mocktail.

Firstly, let me just say that if you’re not a fan of grapefruit this probably isn’t the drink for you. Grapefruits can be extremely tart and doesn’t have that same sweet taste as oranges. It’s not quite as bitter compared to a lemon or lime, but it’s definitely in the running.

Its vibrant color reminds of a Tequila sunrise. Which, of course, it has alcohol with a combination of orange juice and grenadine. But with this grapefruit mocktail, you can just enjoy the health benefits of the fresh grapefruit juice.


To make this grapefruit mocktail, I used only three ingredients: grapefruit, carbonated water, and honey. That’s it! The carbonated water helps give it a bubbly taste along with some fizz that you tend to get when drinking a spritzer.
