A brunch cocktail should be refreshing with simple flavors, and adding a seasonal ingredient turns it up a notch. We are sharing liquor.com’s Grapefruit Negroni recipe with you—we hope you love this twist on the Italian classic cocktail as much we did.

While a Negroni is an acquired taste, the bitterness of the Italian spirit, Campari, is offset by the sweetness of vermouth. For us, it was the addition of our favorite citrus that tipped us over.

Grapefruit Negroni slightly adapted from liquor.com

What you’ll need: 1 long, wide slice of grapefruit peel 2 peeled ruby red grapefruit segments (or 2 oz fresh ruby red grapefruit juice) 1½ oz Gin 1 oz sweet Vermouth ½ oz Campari

Recipe Steps: 1. Fill an old fashioned glass with ice, curl the grapefruit peel around the inside of the glass and set aside. 2. Squeeze the grapefruit segments into a shaker and drop in the fruit. 3. Add the remaining ingredients and fill with ice. 4. Shake vigorously and strain into the prepared glass.

Pair this with our favorite breakfast recipes and you can enjoy a fancy brunch right in the comforts of your living room. Enjoy!
