Ruby Grapefruit Spritz


Makes 1

The bar staff at Lucio’s juice the citrus fruit to order for the restaurant’s signature aperitif, which is a fresh take on a classic Aperol Spritz. Made with blood oranges when they’re in season, ruby grapefruit works perfectly as a summertime substitute.

Juice of ½ ruby grapefruit (see note)

30ml Aperol
90ml dry Prosecco

Slice of grapefruit to garnish


1. In a large wine glass put the grapefruit slice and plenty of ice, pour over Aperol and Prosecco, then top with juice. Stir and serve.


N O T E 

At Lucio’s, they juice the citrus through a juicer which creates a fluffy texture. If you’re making a larger batch, juice the whole flesh of the grapefruit.
