Tart, tangy grapefruit always shines in cocktails. In this sparkling drink, it’s a perfect, bitter balance to slightly sweet berry-flavored vodka, with a big pour of bubbles to fancy it up. Don’t skip the garnish; a big mint sprig adds an herbal aroma that’s a beautiful match for the varied fruit flavors. (Wine-wise, there’s no need for anything too fancy; a good Cava works great.)
To make simple syrup: combine one part sugar with one part hot water until the sugar is dissolved. Let cool before using. —Food52
