Light and fresh, these Pink Grapefruit Wine Spritzers are the perfect Spring luncheon libation.

PINK GRAPEFRUIT WINE SPRITZERS

And that’s exactly why I created these delightful drinks!  I’m throwing a “French-Themed” Mother’s Day Luncheon this year with a girly-pink color scheme, so they’re absolutely perfect.

We’re starting off the luncheon with a selection of lovely French cheeses, fig jam, olives, dried fruits and pistachios.  My Pink Grapefruit Wine Spritzers will be a delicious companion to this fabulous display that’s accompanied by a bountiful bread basket.

PINK GRAPEFRUIT WINE SPRITZERS

INGREDIENTS for 6 Portions:

  • 1 bottle chilled white wine (choose a light one on the sweet side)
  • 16 oz. chilled freshly squeezed pink or red grapefruit juice (pure juice, not a “cocktail”)
  • 4 oz. Triple Sec
  • Crushed or cubed ice
  • Garnishes: Fresh mint leaves, Pink Grapefruit slices

 

DIRECTIONS:  Add the wine, juice and triple sec to a glass pitcher, stir to combine.  Toss in some ice and serve immediately.  Garnish glasses with fresh mint and pink grapefruit slice quarters.

I can’t tell you how wonderful these spritzers are to sip on a warm Spring afternoon… just delightful!

Don’t the Pink Grapefruit Wine Spritzers look wonderful as part of this fabulous ladies luncheon menu?

Here’s what is on the menu of my fabulously French Mother’s Day Luncheon:

 

But what about dessert? You can’t have a bunch of gals together without serving dessert, right?

 

MOTHER’S DAY LUNCHEON – Desserts Are Mandatory!

Here’s the two desserts I chose to be the “sweet endings” to my fabulous Mother’s Day Luncheon.  I’ll serve both with an assortment of teas to wind down what is sure to be a lovely afternoon.

The first is a light and moist Pink Grapefruit Chiffon Cake with White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.  Yes, I know it’s PINK!

I finished the cake off with some delightful sugar flowers and leaves I purchased on Amazon last year.  They last forever if kept in a dry, dark and cool location. 

It turned out so lovely with three luscious layers, just aching for some White Chocolate Buttercreamchocolate grand marnier pots de creme Frosting.  Depending on the size of cake pan you use, you’ll have 2 or 3 layers, so you will need 6 whole cups of frosting for this cake.  (that’s exactly how much my recipe makes!)

Now, for the second Mother’s Day Luncheon dessert, I knew any gaggle of women would be looking around, waiting for the chocolate to appear!  So as not to disappoint, I’ve also included a lovely Chocolate Grand Marnier Pots de Crème on the menu.  

It’s densely chocolate, with a hint of citrus that gives it a new level of sophistication.  In keeping with the party’s pink color-scheme, and the pink grapefruit cake, I garnished them with Candied Pink Grapefruit slices.  They are amazingly addictive, so be careful to save enough for your presentation!

I finished the Chocolate Grand Marnier Pots de Crème with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream and fresh mint.  Don’t they look lovely? And they taste even better!
