Sparkling Sea Breeze


This is a great spring or summer drink for gatherings.  Depending on the size of your glasses and the amount of ice you add to each drink, this recipe can easily serve eight people.  That would be about a cup per person.

Try this as a nice non-alcoholic refreshing vacation in the middle of the afternoon.  Blend the juices with Lemon-Lime soda or Club Soda.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

2 cups Cranberry Juice
2 cups Pink Grapefruit Juice
1 cup Vodka (Try a Cranberry or Pomegranate flavored Vodka)
1 (750ml) bottle Sparkling White Wine, chilled

Garnish with pink grapefruit wheels or wedges

Preparation: Combine the Cranberry Juice, Pink Grapefruit Juice along with the Vodka and shake with ice.  Pour into individual glasses and then gently add the sparkling wine. Garnish if desired.

Remember that, just as in life, sometimes we have to ad-lib.  Well, you can do that here too.  How would or did you change this drink?
