It's the weekend! And it's a gorgeous day here in Georgia, which means I'm ready for a rare winter cocktail hour on the patio!

Created by @the.boozy.ginger, this Sparkling Maple & Grapefruit Margarita has my name written alllll over it. With grapefruit in season here, it would be rude not to enjoy it in every way, shape, and form.

COCKTAIL: Sparkling Maple & Grapefruit Margarita


1 1/2 oz Tequila

1/2 oz Maple syrup

1/2 oz Fresh lime juice

1/2 oz Fresh grapefruit juice

2 oz Prosecco

Garnish: Grapefruit slice and a fresh rosemary sprig


Combine Tequila, maple syrup, lime juice, and grapefruit juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a glass with crushed ice. Top with Prosecco and garnish with a grapefruit slice and a sprig of fresh rosemary.

MAKE IT A MOCKTAIL: For a non-boozy version of this drink, I suggest you leave out the Tequila, double the juice ratios, and swap the Prosecco for sparkling water. I think a citrus sparkling water like Grapefruit La Croix would be the perfect replacement!
