3-Ingredient Happy Hour: The Grapefruit Elderflower Mom-osa
From Lifehacker - May 12, 2017

Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. This week were making a mimosa for moma momosa, if you willand were making it kind of fancy.

Now, I know the mimosa is already fancy in its own rightit comes in a champagne flute, after allbut this is Mom were talking about, and she deserves only the most primo things, including sparkling alcoholic beverages. To make our momosa, well be enlisting the help of pretty pink grapefruit juice and sweet, sweet elderflower liqueur. Before we get to the deets, however, Im going to tell you a little elderflower-scented secret.

I dont use elderflower liqueur in a lot of the cocktails I make for myself and, if Im going to pay $30 for a bottle of ethanol, its going to be gin or rye, not St. Germain (I do love the pretty bottle though). Instead, Ill pick up a $5-bottle of IKEAs elderflower drink syrup, and mix it in equal parts with vodka as needed, to make my own, much cheaper, syrupy elderflower booze.
