Bubbly Grapefruit-Mango Valentine Cocktail

Full disclosure: I am not a Valentines Day person. I think paying for overpriced flowers, candy, or dinners is silly. I do like making something special for someone that says “hey, you are are pretty awesome and I love you.” Valentines Day should be about love for your family, your kids, your pets, your besties, and your significant other (if you don’t have one you were too good for all those other jerks you previously dated anyway).  This bubbly grapefruit-mango cocktail is as pretty as it is delicious so invite over someone you love, whip up a few of these and cheers to how amazing you both are.

Ingredients :

1 ripe grapefruit

2 ripe mangoes (you can also substitute frozen mango)
