This Spicy Grapefruit Ginger Fizz mocktail is full of deliciously bold, spicy, and fresh flavors, it’s minimally sweet, and it’s easy to whip up in just 5 minutes.
After having spent the better part of the last two years not drinking much alcohol (especially amidst our fertility struggles, IVF, and later becoming pregnant), I’ve sampled more mocktails recently than I have in years. And you guys, I’ve gotta be honest — there are a lot of terrible mocktails out there! Most that I’ve ordered out at restaurants and bars are loaded up with far too much sugar, they typically lack any sort of “kick” or interesting nuances, and they’re just — oof — disappointing. Which seems like such a missed opportunity!
So this winter, I’ve been on a mission to up my mocktail game here at home. And this recipe in particular has been one of my absolute favorites so far.
Meet this legit-awesome, alcohol-free, spicy grapefruit ginger fizz. ♡
It’s made with some of my favorite mixers that go big on fresh flavors, including tart grapefruit juice, spicy ginger beer, fresh lime and mint, and a generous muddling of fresh jalapeño slices to add some kick. They’re simple ingredients that can be mixed together in less than 5 minutes. And together, they combine to create a drink that is refreshingly tart, minimally sweet, fun and fizzy, and packed with however much heat you can handle.
The result is a satisfying sipper that is genuinely fun to drink and anything but boring. So grab some grapefruit while they’re in season, and let’s craft some mocktails together!
