A sign of a good cruise is when the mimosa and bellini station is as bottomless as the ocean below. When you set sail on the high seas with no particular direction or destination in mind, you have achieved vacation nirvana.

What better way to keep re-create those light and airy vacay vibes at home than with a crisp and refreshing first drink of the day? Inspired by the christening of new boats with Champagne, as well as the brunch table spread with fresh citrus fruits and sweet and savory bites, this cocktail brings peach and grapefruit lightness to the table, deck, bow, or balcony.

The use of a homemade or store-bought shrub brings acidic electricity to the palate that’ll have you signaling to the waitstaff (or your spouse) that one more should do the trick, and topping with tiny bubbles will allow you to float out into the tanning deck — or a towel in your backyard. Maybe start with one and see how bottomless your vacation day is going to go.
