This could be a new favourite. It’s simple, tops up well, and looks incredibly elegant. And the fizz transforms it from a basic fruit juice into an exciting taste sensation.
1/2 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
1 tablespoon rosemary sugar syrup
Sparkling water to top
Sprig rosemary and/or grapefruit slice as garnish
Make the rosemary sugar syrup beforehand, by heating 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan.
Heat for approximately 5 minutes, without boiling, to avoid crystals forming.
Add 2-3 sprigs of rosemary to the syrup, and cool.
For each glass, start with the 1/2 cup grapefruit juice.
Add the rosemary sugar syrup, then top with sparkling water.
Garnish with rosemary and slice or two of grapefruit

I tried to get the rosemary to stand up, as in

However after drinking, and then topping it up again, the garnish looked better simply floating on top.
