This Pink Grapefruit Gin Fizz Cocktail is the perfect drink for your next spring (and summer) soirée! This festive cocktail is bubbly, slightly tart, yet sweet and super refreshing!
Grapefruit Gin Fizz
I love using fresh juices in cocktails at home. I don’t tend to order them when we’re out though, unless the menu clearly states the juice is fresh. I’ve learned otherwise most of the time, my drink will be overly sweet with fake juice. No thanks.
But at Casa de Crews? All bets are off. This Grapefruit Gin Fizz Cocktail is the perfect bevvy for a spring weekend (ahem, hey Easter) outside as the weather warms up. Also, I’m just obsessed with the soft pink hue, with bubbles. Traditionally, a Gin Fizz gets its, ‘fizz’ from club soda and an egg white, but I used a grapefruit flavored La Croix, because I had it on hand.
You could use the Lemon-Lime La Croix, tonic water, or if you really want to booze it up, a little topper of bubbly champagne, or prosecco! Alternatively, this would make one refreshing mocktail, if you omit the gin altogether.
If you’re looking for an autumn or winter gin fizz recipe, make my Pear Gin Fizz instead.
I like to use large ice cubes, as they melt slower, so my cocktail stays cold, and the ice doesn’t melt too soon, but you do you. And at the very last minute, I garnished each glass with thinly sliced cucumbers. It just seemed like the right thing to do, friends. Cheers!

I was a fan of gin and grapefruit years ago. I had forgotten how much I love it. Now with the lime, rosemary simple syrup and the sparkling water,,,,,,heaven.
I’m glad you rediscovered this one, Sara – Cheers!
This has now become our favorite quarantine drink! Looking forward to sharing the love of this cocktail with our friends when we are able 🙂 I’m not a gin fan but now I am! Try it! You won’t be disappointed!
I am so glad you are enjoying these! Truthfully, this drink was inspired by my sister, who loves gin (I do not) and once we played around with it, it turns out I enjoy at least one cocktail that calls for gin 😉 Thanks for commenting – happy hunkering down!
Where in the recipe does it mention the amount of gin?
Hi Eileen, the recipe calls for 1/2 cup (approx 4 ounces) for a serving of four. Each glass should be mixed with 1-ounce of gin. Hope that helps you! Please reply if you have any other questions. Cheers!
