Citrus Sparkler Cocktail Recipe

Citrus Sparkler Cocktail (by A Beautiful Mess)There are times when all the heavy holiday food can leave you craving something light and fresh. For times like these I present to you… The Citrus Sparkler Cocktail! It's so refreshing. Lemons + GrapefruitFirst, slice lemon and grapefruit pieces. Citrus Sparkler CocktailFill a glass with ice, lemons and grapefruit pieces. Combine one part Gin, one part sweetened lime juice, a splash of citrus bitters and two parts club soda. Stir and serve! 

If you prefer a non-alcoholic version try one part lemonade, one part sweetened lime juice and two parts club soda. 🙂 Citrus Sparkler Cocktail RecipeEnjoy! xoxo. Elsie

  • You guys would probably love the book “Gatsby Cocktails”. It’s a recipe book of yummy classic 20s cocktails! Right when I saw it I thought of your previous posts on mint juleps and sidecars 🙂

  • HEY Elsie! How was your birthday?! We’re both Scorpios <3 I just turned 25 on the 17th 🙂

  • This looks AMAZING! I’ve added it to my bookmark list of things to make/try!


  • This looks so fun and refreshing! I’m a huge fan of citrus cocktails, so this one definitely lands on my “to try” list! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Yummy! I love citrus flavour!


  • That looks amazing! it would be perfect to cut the large amount of gravy I intend to digest 🙂

  • Wow, look great. I would like to taste it. Have a nice day.

  • mmmm!this looks so delicious and refreshing!im a gin and tonic kind of girl, but this looks so good!

  • I’m starting to feel really thirsty now, looks delicious! xx

  • This looks good. I love drinks with gin, gin+lemon might be even better. But shouldn´t the fruits be “untreated”?

  • I used to follow your blog from my old laptop, but when it broke down and i got a new one i forgot the name of this blog (it was in my favorites before so i didnt have to type the name). But now i found you again, and im so happy! I love this inspiring blog you have! 🙂

  • Mm this looks tasty. I always love your recipes! Gracias (:
    xo, Clare

  • This looks delicious. I might try it for my own little friendsgiving. Also, I just wanted to let you guys know how much I love you’re blog. Besides a Beautiful Mess I read a lot of fashion blogs. Those are good for inspiration in their own way, but I always finish by checking your site. Its so bright, happy, and optimistic. Thanks for all the awesome ideas and joy!

  • Chickything,
    I will try to write about this subject on Everyday Elsie sometime.
    When Jeremy is away I usually take on extra creative projects and give myself a different nighttime routine to distract from his absence. It is VERY hard no matter what, though, especially for tours longer than 2 weeks. I feel your pain.

  • Oh yum! I’ve never heard of citrus bitters, ill have to have a look for it.

  • Oh wow cant wait to try maybe ill make one now, thanks for the cocktail:)

  • Would love to try this out, because it sounds super yummy! It’s nice to drink something refreshing every now and then instead of only hot coco’s and tea.

  • Hi Elsie, this is totally unrelated but I could not find your email anywhere. I need your insight on a totally different topic that you might be able to talk about on everyday elsie. I am married to a musician myself, just like you are with Mr. Larson and I am having a hard time dealing with the out of town shows. I guess I have trust issues and all that specially that I stay home with the kids and cannot tag along.
    How do you deal with that? What does Jeremy do to reassure you when he’s away? How do you deal with all the time away from each other plus all dealing with the thoughts of female companions around? or should I say, fans? Please help. Thanks!

  • I love any cocktail that grapefruit is involved in 🙂 If you ever get Rio Star’s up in Missouri, try them – they’re TX grapefruits and sooooo good.

  • Looks delicious! You should try Spanish Sangria! I’m sure you will like it!
