Thirsty Thursday: Mother’s Day Sparkling Cocktail + Saks Sale

Mother’s Day is this Sunday!  Why not whip up this sweet drink for her, to celebrate!  Or if you’re a mother, to celebrate YOU!  I found this yummy recipe, HERE.  Enjoy!

Mother’s Day Sparkling Cocktail

A bottle of chilled champagne or sparkling wine*
Grand Marnier or orange liqueur
3-4 grapefruits, juiced
Star fruit for garnish

In a champagne flute, pour 1/4 cup of grapefruit juice and one tablespoon of orange liqueur. Fill the rest of the glass with 1/2 cup of champagne. Garnish with a slice of star fruit.

*You can make a non-alcoholic version of this drink by combining freshly squeezed grapefruit juice with lemon-lime seltzer or soda.

This recipe yields enough servings for you and your mom to have a REALLY fun afternoon. Enjoy!
