Cocktail Time – Limoncello Grapefruit Punch

by Aleah and Nick

Hello! We’re in full-on spring mode at Valley & Co. mixing up cocktails, sampling springtime menus, and knee-deep in planning festive and creative details for our upcoming client events. Did we mention mixing up cocktails?

We’re lucky ducks as a big part of our job is taste-testing food and drinks {and cake!} for our parties we plan. Serving up fresh and seasonal cocktails that appease the senses is something that’s appreciated by guests at wedding and parties, so taking steps to serve creative flavors that meld well is important to creating that perfect bar. Our Limoncello and Grapefruit Punch is a cocktail we developed for Celebrations at Home, with spring in mind. It’s super refreshing and quite pretty, if we say so ourselves. Enjoy!

Limoncello Grapefruit Cocktail

Muddle a few leaves of mint in the bottom of a lowball glass. Add ice, 1/2 oz. limoncello and 1/2 oz. vodka. Top with grapefruit juice and sparkling water. Garnish with a lemon wedge and a sprig of mint.

This is such a festive and pretty cocktail that can be made mocktail-style, too. Just replace the limoncello with lemon juice, and the vodka with more sparkling water. Fizziness at its best!

One of our biggest party planning cocktail tips is key: make up batches of cocktails in pitchers so when guests arrive, serving is a snap. Place chilled pitchers of cocktails and let guests adorn their glasses with lemon wedges and mint and play mixologist to an extent.
