EXPERT TIPS

Want to turn this non-alcoholic grapefruit drink into a cocktail instead? You have several options! For those who’d like to kick things up a notch, add 1-2oz of vodka, tequila, or gin to turn this into a grapefruit cocktail. You could also replace the lemon-lime soda with champagne or sparkling wine for a grapefruit spritzer!

Want to make this a refined sugar free mocktail? You will need to do two things. First, Select a lemon-lime soda that fits this requirement. While I usually make my mocktail recipes with Sprite or 7up (because I can buy them in mini-cans), there are sugar-free soda options you can select instead! My go-to sugar-free soda is Zevia, which I can find readily at my local grocery store. Second, select a natural sweetener to replace the simple syrup. I would recommend using agave (start with a half ounce and add more to taste).
