Happy New Year's Eve Cocktail: Sparkling Rosemary Grapefruit Soda
 
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup rosemary, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup grapefruit juice (about two grapefruits)
  • 5 cups club soda or plain sparkling water
  • Ice, for serving
  • Rosemary sprigs, for garnishing
Instructions
  1. Combine the plain water, granulated sugar and rosemary in a saucepan over high heat.
  2. Stir occasionally until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is hot to the touch, about three to five minutes.
  3. Remove the syrup from the heat and allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes. This will allow the rosemary flavor to infuse throughout the syrup.
  4. When the time has passed, use a mesh strainer (or colander in a pinch) to strain the syrup into a pitcher. Discard the strained rosemary.
  5. Add the grapefruit juice and stir to combine.
  6. Immediately before serving, add the club soda or sparkling water and again stir to combine.
  7. Serve over ice and garnish each glass with sprig of rosemary.
