Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup tightly packed fresh mint leaves, torn and bruised
  • 2 large pink grapefruit, peeled, pith removed
  • 1 bottle prosecco or other sparkling wine, chilled substitute sparkling grape juice or club soda for alcohol-free version

Instructions
 

  • Make a simple syrup by combining the honey and water in a small saucepan
    set over medium heat. Add the mint leaves and stir to combine.
    Simmer, stirring frequently, until the honey is completely dissolved.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat
    and strain the syrup, discarding the mint leaves.
  • Place the peeled grapefruit in a high-speed blender and blend until
    completely liquefied, approximately 1 minute.
  • Fill four champagne flutes 1/3 full with the grapefruit puree and drizzle a spoonful of the
    honey-mint simple syrup into each glass. (Use more or less syrup
    according to taste). Stir briefly to combine, and then top off each
    glass with the chilled prosecco before serving. Cheers!
