a monthly dinner club

If you are new here, let me explain about my dinner club.

About 2 years ago, I joined 4 other blogger friends and created a virtual dinner club.

Every month, we have a theme, and we each create a tablescape to go along with our theme.

The tablescapes are shared with you the last Thursday of every month.

We also create a menu to go along with our theme that we share the last Saturday of the month. We take turns with each of the courses, and share a drink, appetizer, 2 side dishes, main entree and a dessert.

Last year, we decided to invite a guest host every month, and this month we are happy to have Kate from Southern Home and Hospitality joining us.

a refreshing sparkling grapefruit cocktail

This month I had the cocktail for our menu.

I had so much fun experimenting with recipes.

I decided on a grapefruit cocktail, and I shared several variations including a mocktail recipe.

This refreshing drink is perfect for any spring or summer get together.

It’s not only delicious, but so pretty.

I made flower shape grapefruit juice ice cubes to add to the cocktail, which added a fun and beautiful element.

The best part, is when the grapefruit ice cube melts, it doesn’t water your drink down like a normal ice cube would.

In fact, as it melts, it continues to add a wonderful flavor to your cocktail.

Get the recipe and details about how to make grapefruit juice flower ice cubes here.
