Prosecco + Grapefruit Cocktail

My husband says that wine cocktails make him think of episodes of Real Housewives. When I told him about this recipe, I think he pictured me lounging on the back deck, throwing back a few glasses, getting a foot massage and enjoying a gourmet lunch prepared by a personal chef. (Where the kids were in this imaginary scenario, I have no idea.)

Now, don't misunderstand. If I get the opportunity to experience the above scenario, I will thoroughly enjoy it and not feel the least bit bad about it. Until then, I'll be sipping one of these after I collapse on the couch at the end of the night. Of course, being the classy woman I am, I'll be wearing my sweatpants and binge watching Friends on Netflix.

And you know what? That sounds like a pretty good night to me. 

Prosecco + Grapefruit Cocktail
Yields 2 drinks

1/2 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
5-6 sprigs fresh thyme (plus more for garnish)
1 Tablespoon honey
Chilled Prosecco

Tear the thyme leaves off the stem and add to a cocktail shaker with the grapefruit juice, honey and a handful of ice. Shake vigorously for about 15 seconds.

Strain evenly into two glasses and top with Prosecco to taste. Stir gently if needed. Add a sprig of thyme for garnish. Serve and enjoy!
