Description

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.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary sugar syrup
  • Sparkling water to top
  • Sprig rosemary and/or grapefruit slice as garnish

Instructions

  • 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 generally try to have a bottle of ruby red grapefruit juice at home. It’s one of the few juices my boys won’t abscond with, as they strangely think it’s too sour.

I tried to get the rosemary to stand up, as in http://www.thecasualcraftlete.com/2015/04/28/grapefruit-and-rosemary-mocktail-2/, but ended up spearing it into the slice of fruit.

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