A Sparkling Grapefruit Rosé Cocktail will bring a burst of citrusy goodness into your next cocktail hour! The combination of fresh grapefruit juice, your favorite wine, and splash of bubbly club soda is light and refreshing. Perfect for sipping on the patio!
The weather is FINALLY coming around and I honestly couldn’t be more excited about it!
Just the other night, I was walking around comfortably without a coat, and it felt just like heaven.
I swear, I get so tired of the cold after a while. I just crave the sunshine and warm breezes that are so present in Colorado in the spring and summer months.
The fact that I can run around in my car with the sunroof wide open now gives me SO much joy. There’s something about those early summer drives, when the weather isn’t too hot. You can put all the windows down and blast your favorite songs. All while singing at the top of your lungs, if you are anything like me!
Do you ever feel like that around this time of year? Just the mere ability to step outside to take out the garbage without having to layer up in coats is so nice!
I know I will be hating summer heat soon enough, but for now, I can truly enough every single moment of it.
This year we had a LOT of snow and a LOT of cold. So I am ready for the burst of sunshine, and I’m also ready for the burst of sunshine that is this cocktail.
I have been really into rosé in the last week or so. The bright and lightness of the crisp wine is so refreshing. That’s exactly what I wanted to bring to this cocktail.

This grapefruit rosé cocktail is the ideal combination of bright, light, and sweet. The tart fresh grapefruit juice plays well with the citrusy wine, as well as the simple syrup.
Just be aware that despite the light flavor of the cocktail, it’s a boozy one. So don’t go chugging this 😉
The vodka will sneak up on ya! It’s the easiest way to get that summer buzz without feeling like you are drinking straight booze.
This Recipe’s Must-Haves
To get the look you see here, grab these gorgeous and affordable coupe glasses. I love these for cocktails, punches, mimosas, and more!
This Boston cocktail shaker is the only shaker your home bar needs. I use it ALL the time.
To give your cocktail a final stir, reach for cocktail stirring spoons! I always have a few of these on my bar cart to change out as they get dirty.
Should I use a dry or sweet rosé?
This is up to your taste preferences! I personally like a drier cocktail but if you want a touch of extra sweetness, be sure to use a sweeter wine. Don’t worry, if you use the sweeter rosé, it won’t be too sweet.
