Honey Ruby Red Grapefruitade

Makes 7 1/2 cups

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.


  • ¾ cup honey

  • ¾ cup water

  • 6 cups fresh Ruby Red grapefruit juice, strained (from about 6 grapefruits)

  • 2 cups sparkling rose, chilled (optional)


  1. Bring honey and water to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring to combine. Remove from heat, and let cool.

  2. Combine juice and honey syrup in a pitcher. (Or cover, and refrigerate for up to 3 days.) Add rose to pitcher. Divide juice among ice-filled glasses.

Cook's Notes

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