White wine cocktail recipe inspiration

What I love about traveling is that I’m inspired to recreate dishes and drinks I’ve sampled on the road. One such drink was a grapefruit cocktail I enjoyed during a trip through Kansas City, Missouri a few years ago. It was sweet and refreshing though too boozy for an everyday drink.

I wanted to create a refreshing grapefruit flavored cocktail that I could sip in the evenings that wouldn’t knock me out before dinner was served. I thought a wine cocktail would do the trick.

This white wine cocktail recipe is made with grapefruit juice, seltzer, and frozen Sauvignon blanc wine. Click to get the Skinny White Wine Cocktails recipe. Perfect for Mother's Day brunches, summer BBQs, or girls night in parties.

I love using Sauvignon blanc wine in my white wine cocktails recipes, especially when paired with grapefruit, because it’s a refreshing, crisp and dry wine. Perfect for the warmer weather!

I created two white wine cocktail recipe versions – a frozen grapefruit slushy and a skinny version with grapefruit flavored seltzer.

Frozen Wine Cocktails with Grapefruit

I adore frozen cocktails since they’re so much fun to sip through a straw out of stemless wine cocktail glasses. They give me an excuse to use my high speed blender more often, too!

For the Frozen Wine Cocktails with Grapefruit, instead of freezing grapefruit juice in ice cube trays, I froze pieces of ruby red grapefruit overnight. That way you get a bit of fiber along with your cocktail. (We can all use more fiber in our diets, right?)

I cut back on some of the calories by using stevia instead of sugar, too. (You can also use monk fruit sweetener.)

I enjoy freezing wine in an ice ball maker mold and then plunking it in a margarita glass of flavored seltzer water with a garnish of something from my herb garden. This way my guests and I can have the delicious taste of the Sauvignon blanc in some Skinny White Wine Cocktails as the wine ball slowly melts into the seltzer and juice mixture. It helps avoid the calories and boozy affects of a full glass of wine, too!

I like to freeze up a batch of wine balls to keep on hand for guests or a party. I keep the frozen wine balls in a Ziplock freezer bag until it’s time to make up a batch of Skinny White Wine Cocktails.
