Yesterday I was stressing over what kind of drink that I wanted to make. I get like this a lot, I have stuff written down, but I never know exactly what it is that I want.
Do you ever get like that?
It’s really annoying.
I knew I wanted something brunchy, sweet, and perfect for a Valentine’s Day brunch. I started thinking of all the mimosa’s that I have ever had and decided that none of them were good enough for this specific post.
B and I were out for one of our long walks and this is all that I could think of. We went to the grocery store and it finally hit me.
I needed something sweet, tart, and pink. I needed grapefruit juice.
Okay, step one done.
But what goes with grapefruit juice. I could use a regular sparkling wine or white wine, but that just seems so simple.
Perfect, especially since the rose means so much during this time of year.
