Recipe: Grapefruit Mimosas for a Crowd

A lucky New Year's Day brunch calls for something simple and bubbly to begin the year on a festive note, and I have just the thing. It's hardly groundbreaking — we all know and love the classic brunch mimosa — but grapefruit puts such a refreshing edge on this old favorite. And with just two ingredients, it can't be beat for simplicity.

And since we're entering high citrus season, I scooped up a box of kumquats to make a whimsical garnish. Why not perch a roly-poly kumquat on the edge of a glass, and have a sip of bubbly to toast the new year for luck?

Grapefruit Mimosas for a Crowd

Serves 6 to 10

  • 3 cups

    unsweetened grapefruit juice, chilled

  • 1

    (750-milliliter) bottle dry sparkling wine, chilled

  • 8 to 10


Fill a champagne coupe or flute about 1/2 full with grapefruit juice, then top off with dry sparkling wine and stir lightly.

Make a slit lengthwise in a kumquat and slide it on the edge of the glass. Serve (and sip) immediately.

Recipe Notes

Non-alcoholic note: For a non-alcoholic sparkler, replace the sparkling wine with chilled tonic water.

Happy New Year!
