  • 3 tbsp white granulated sugar
  • Juice of 1 large ruby grapefruit or approx 240ml/1 cup of store-bought juice
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) vodka
  • 2 cups of ice
  • 360 ml (1 1/2 cups) red or pink prosecco
  • Candied grapefruit slices to decorate. To make these, sprinkle small slices of grapefruit with light brown sugar, then grill/broil or dry fry on a high heat for 1-2 minutes, turning once until lightly caramelised. Leave to cool for a few minutes before making a small slit in the grapefruit slice and placing on the rim of the glass.


  1. Pour the sugar on a flat plate. Dip the rim of the glasses in grapefruit juice, then dip in the sugar to give each glass a sugar-rim.
  2. Pour the remaining grapefruit juice, vodka and ice into a blender. Blend until the mixture turns to slush. You may need to scrape down the sides a couple of times.
  3. Spoon the slush mixture into the four glasses and top with the pink prosecco.
  4. Decorate the glasses with a slice of candied grapefruit and serve immediately.
