I made you all a fall cocktail because it’s Wednesday and I thought you might need one.
Also, I recorded myself making said fall cocktail because it was Tuesday afternoon and I definitely needed one.
Grapefruit Rosemary Refresher
Fresh lime juice
Rosemary simply syrup (recipe below)
Sugar and finely chopped rosemary for the sugar rim, optional
Extra rosemary for garnish, optional
ROSEMARY SIMPLE SYRUP:
Put 1 part sugar, 1 part water, and fresh rosemary sprigs into a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil then let simmer for 5 minutes. Let the mixture cool while the rosemary continues to steep. Discard rosemary sprigs. Syrup will keep for at least a month in your fridge.
Run a cut lime around the rim of your glass then dip in the sugar/rosemary mixture. Fill your glass with ice. Put 1 part rum, 1 part lime juice, 1 part simple syrup, 1 part sparkling water, and 2 parts grapefruit juice in the glass. Stir. Top with a sprig of rosemary and enjoy!
You can make this cocktail single serving or family style! Just replace “part” with a measurement (i.e., ounce, half cup, cup).
