Grapefruit Sage Mimosa
When we decided we were going to do an episode during Ladycamp on the importance of female friendship, I knew I couldn’t serve just any old cocktail. I narrowed it down to two and put it up for a vote on Instagram. The vote was ALMOST unanimous for this Grapefruit Sage Mimosa. It did not disappoint.
I made a couple of tweaks to the original recipe, including muddling the sage and grapefruit and using a brut rose champagne instead of sweet. It’s really a personal preference as I’m sure the original would have been fantastic as well!
Ladycamp and the Importance of Female Friendship
As you’ll hear on Episode 4 of the Crunchy Cocktail Hour, Ladycamp is a group of female coworkers turned friends that go on weekends away together including a 3-day summer camp in May (hence Ladycamp). On this episode, we talk about the importance of female friendship and some tips for making friends in your thirties and forties when the ease of making friends in high school and college has fallen away. I have to admit, I love this topic. I think female friendships are incredibly important and I truly cherish mine. I’m lucky enough to have some wonderful women in my life from high school, college, work and even family that I consider dear friends. Having friends that know your heart and that you can call for anything is invaluable.
