Grapefruit and Rosemary Mocktail (Serves 4 cups)
courtesy of

I always make my own fresh grapefruit juice. It’s just tastes so much better than store bought. For this recipe of four drinks, I juiced 4 large pink grapefruits. That should make approximately 16 oz of juice. I stored the juice in a mason jar with a lid and refrigerated it over night. It’s very important that all the components of this drink are nice and chilled.

Rosemary Simple Syrup Ingredients
1 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
3 sprigs of rosemary

Mocktail per 4 glasses
2 cups fresh pink grapefruit juice
1/4 cup of the rosemary simple syrup
4 cups sparkling water

  1. Rosemary Simple Syrup: In a small sauce pan on the stove, add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of granulated sugar over medium heat. Dissolve the sugar for about 5 minutes. Do not let the mixture boil or crystals will form. Once the sugar has dissolved, pour the simple syrup into a heat safe container. Add 3 sprigs of rosemary and let steep for at least one hour. The syrup will keep in the refrigerator for ten days.
  2. Mocktail per glass: Add 1/2 cup fresh pink grapefruit into a serving glass. Add 1 Tablespoon (1/2 oz) of rosemary simple syrup. Stir. Fill the remainder of the glass with sparkling water (about 1 cup)
  3. Garnish with rosemary Sprig
  4. Serve chilled
