The Elderflower and Grapefruit sparkler is a unique cocktail that’s low in calories
If you’ve been reading my blog for any time now, you’ve probably noticed that I have a real fondness for unique cocktails that are cold, refreshing, and low in calories. This Elderflower and Grapefruit Sparkler is definitely all three!
Refreshing and delicious, this cocktail is a true delight to the palate. The first thing you notice is the tangy sweetness of grapefruit. But when you add in the sweet, musky, herbal flavors of Elderflower, Vanilla, and Rosemary, you end up with a flavor that simply must be experienced to be believed. In fact, even if you’re not a big fan of grapefruit, I think this Elderflower Grapefruit Sparkler might just change your mind!
What I like best is that if you use Sparkling Ice Pink Grapefruit instead of straight-up grapefruit juice, you cut a fair amount of the calories and sugar in this cocktail without compromising on flavor. And it’s super-easy to make the Elderflower Grapefruit Sparkler as a mocktail, instead. So if you have kids around, be sure to get some Elderflower syrup so they can enjoy this delicious beverage, too.
Perfect for any occasion where you are looking for something special, and especially refreshing on a warm day, I really hope you’ll give this one a try soon!
