Whether you are participating in Dry January, Damp January, or you prefer Mocktails year-around, I am sure that this Citrus Mint Winter Mocktail will quickly become one of your favorites.
I initially made this for New Year’s Eve and I’ve probably made it 10+ times since then. I’ve served it to all of our friends and family and nobody can believe it only has 3 ingredients in it. I hope you love this super simple Winter Mocktail recipe as much as we all have!

This has to be my favorite mocktail of all time. The tartness of the in-season grapefruit during Winter, combined with the freshness of the mint from the crisp sparkling water creates the perfect citrus Winter Mocktail that will take you under 2 minutes to put together.
Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice- I have tried so many bottles grapefruit juices and as much as I wanted one to work, none even come close to fresh squeezed, especially since this is the star flavor of this mocktail.
Maple Syrup- I prefer maple syrup as the sweetener in all of my mocktails. It mixes so much easier than honey does and gives more depth in flavor than a simple syrup does. Maple syrup also has some potential health benefits over sugar. You can read about them here if you’re interested!
Ice- I love crushed ice, but any ice will work for this one!
How to make the perfect Winter Mocktail
In a shaker, combine 4 oz fresh grapefruit juice with 1-2 oz maple syrup and ice. Shake well and pour over a cup of ice.
Top with the Mint flavored sparkling water of your choice. I usually use roughly 2 oz.
Garnish as you’d like and enjoy your fresh Citrus Winter Mocktail!
