Grapefruit Mimosas

Grapefruit Mimosa

 

A few years ago, I was in Austin, Texas for work and happened upon the Deep Eddy distillery.  We tasted all of the vodkas they make, and the grapefruit was my favorite by far.  I am obsessed with creating new drinks to use the vodka in, as I always have a bottle on hand (my mom usually has a handle on hand!).  The vodka used to be harder to find, but it’s carried in most major grocery stores nowadays. I love the tanginess of grapefruit against the champagne and the bitters round out the drink.  Adding a long strip of the zest over the rim of the glass ensures you get a whiff of grapefruit with every sip.
