Honey Ruby Red Grapefruitade
For a deep-blush citrus cooler with a bubbly finish and an adult taste, add honey to red grapefruit juice and top off the mixture with a generous splash of chilled sparkling rose wine.

- Yield Makes 7 1/2 cups
Serves 6 to 8
- 3/4 cup honey
- 3/4 cup water
- 6 cups fresh Ruby Red grapefruit juice, strained (from about 6 grapefruits)
- 2 cups sparkling rose, chilled (optional)
- Bring honey and water to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring to combine. Remove from heat, and let cool.

Any honey can be used for this drink, but wildflower honey adds a nuanced flavor that is slightly floral.
