Spicy Grapefruit and Lime Mocktail

This refreshing, tangy, and spicy mocktail is the perfect beverage to enjoy on a warm summer day, a date night in, or anytime you want something fizzy, tasty, and alcohol-free.

If you’re pregnant and are looking for a good mocktail, look no further, my simple Spicy Grapefruit and Lime Mocktail will become your new go-to! Now, before I share any further, just know that I don’t like sweet drinks in general. I have never liked sweet cocktails, I love the type of drink that makes me pucker my lips from that sour tang!

Spicy Grapefruit and Lime Mocktail

Thus, there’s no sweetener here and it’s basically just a tangy, refreshing mocktail. The spice level is buildable and all dependent on how many seeds from the jalapeño that you use. If you like it spicy, leave in a few seeds (maybe 3), but if you don’t love spice but love jalapeño flavor or essence, omit the seeds entirely.

After you make this, taste it, and adjust to your preferences – top it off with more soda water or grapefruit juice (or both!) or stir in some more jalapeño seeds. A few sprigs of mint would be nice here too, but I like to keep it simple!

There’s something about this grapefruit and lime combo that makes me feel like I’m sipping on a true cocktail! I’d love to know – what’s your go-to mocktail?

we’re flying back to new jersey on friday and already starting to miss it here in florida ☀️ the weather’s nice, but I’ll most miss all the time spent with our family together 🙏🏼 for the past (almost) 2 years, we’ve spent a lot of time in florida with my family and that’s been the silver lining of the pandemic 🙏🏼 right now, my grandmother is here and that time is extra special. I don’t think I’d ever have the chance to be with her for this amount of time otherwise, and I am so, so grateful for it 👵🏼💓 photos by @karlakorn 📸 ...
