Here in AZ, we have a ton of citrus this time of year. I ended up with a bunch of ruby red grapefruit and thought it would make a great brunch punch for a baby shower I was helping my cousin put on. It turned out so great for the shower that I thought it would make a great brunch punch for Mother’s Day. It’s the perfect amount of tart and sweet.
I’ve heard that a paloma is a cocktail that has grapefruit in it, but this is a non-alcoholic version. Of course you could always add in some sparkling wine instead of ginger ale to make it more of a cocktail than a mocktail. We are all about the mocktails over here.
Sparkling Grapefruit Party Punch Recipe Tip:
Adding pink sugared rims on the glassware is a fun touch and are really tasty with this grapefruit party punch. That would be a fun surprise for mom. Just pour some sugar onto a plate and spread it out evenly. Wet the rim of your glass with water, then press into a plate of sugar. I used a combination of plain white sugar and some pink sugar crystals. Delicious and refreshing.
