Grapefruit, Rosemary & Ginger Mocktail
Still on your dry January kick? Keep it up- you’re almost there! Trust me, I love a good cocktail but sometimes a gal just needs a break. However, just because you’re not drinking doesn’t mean you have to only drink boring water! This mocktail recipe is so delicious it will satiate any of those cocktail cravings.
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 inch fresh ginger, sliced
3 sprigs fresh rosemary
3 oz fresh squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice
1 oz rosemary ginger simple syrup
Sprig of rosemary for garnish
The first thing you want to do is make the simple syrup. In a small pan over medium high heat add the sugar, water, rosemary, and sliced ginger
Let the simple syrup come to a simmer and once all of the sugar has dissolved turn off the heat and let it come to room temperature
In a shaker with ice add the grapefruit juice and simple syrup. Shake until chilled
Add into a glass, top with sparkling water, and garnish with a rosemary sprig. That’s it! A delicious mocktail that won’t make you feel like you’re missing out on any fun. Cheers!
