Grapefruit Beer Mimosa Cocktail Recipe

Mash ups make us indecisive: on one hand we like the concept of combining two of our favorite things but so often we’re not sure the sum is better than the parts. Case in point this mash up of Frozen and Breaking Bad (too cynical for us) or this one of Wrecking Ball + Somebody That I Used To Know (we’d just as soon listen to the original versions) but they always get major points for creativity. But if there’s a mash up we can totally get behind it’s Lillian’s beer-mosa where she makes this Grapefruit Beer Mimosa Cocktail recipe, a bubbly mimosa with a grapefruit and wheat beer combo. Does it mean we’ll leave behind the free mimosa brunches? Heck no! But it is decidedly something that we’re fans of. 

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!

  • 6 large ruby red grapefruits
  • 1/2 cup unrefined granulated sugar
