Happy VVP Saturday, beautiful soul!
If you’ve been around these digs for a while now, you’ll remember how much fun we had at the previous Virtual Vegan Potluck parties with Raw Red Velvet Cake Ice-Cream, Beetroot & Vegan ‘Goat Cheese’ Tarts and Pickled Beet Mini Tacos:

A huge thank you to An Unrefined Vegan, Canned Time and Bunny Kitchen for hosting this amazing, global party once again.
Lately I’ve been mixing up a storm of delicious, alcohol-and-sugar-free elixir recipes for Sexy Sobriety, so I thought why not bring some to the VVP Party as well!
The first time I made this drink, my grapefruit was a lovely pink colour inside. This time around, my magical grapefruit was a light-orange colour. The result was a lot sweeter, but both versions were delicious.
My point? Any grapefruit in a storm should do it. The sweetness of fresh basil tones down the grapefruit’s bitterness and together they produce a sophisticated, flavour sensation.
Best of all? It’s super healthy, a cinch to make, and will thoroughly impress your guests.
Basil Grapefruit Elixir
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
- 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves firmly packed
- Sparkling mineral/soda water
- Ice cubes
- Using a mortar and pestle (or similar tool), muddle grapefruit juice and basil leaves until well crushed.
- Using a small strainer, strain juice into two glasses.
- Add ice, and top up each glass with sparkling mineral water.
