Ring In The New Year with One of Pantone's Colors of The Year

Ever since attending The Art of The Modern Cocktail a year ago, I've been looking to make a cocktail with farm fresh ingredients. When Pantone announced its 2016 color of the year, I knew I had a simple drink for ringing in the new year: Rose Quartz Mimosas.

How are you closing out 2015?
Happy New Year


I have to admit when I saw the Pantone Color of The Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity, I was having 1980 flashbacks. All I could see was dusty blue and rose. More specifically, the Rubbermaid melmac tankards, plates, and bowls I chose to take with me to my freshman dorm. But then I saw freshly squeezed Ruby grapefruit juice and warmed to half of the color.

Here's what you need to create your Pantone Color of the Year mimosas: three Ruby grapefruits (or a cup and a half of grapefruit juice) and a bottle of Prosecco. If you're using a hand held juicer, like our PowerLix Hand Citrus Press Juicer(*affiliate link), you'll want to quarter your grapefruit halves.

Fill your champagne flutes a third of the way full with freshly squeezed Ruby grapefruit juice and then add champagne. Voila! You have Rose Quartz mimosas!

So, do you agree? What better way to start 2016 than with half of the Pantone Color of The Year: Rose Quartz? Happy New Year!
