Rosemary-Grapefruit Gin Fizzes

If you’re a gin and tonic fan be sure to try this classy cocktail! Rosemary-infused simple syrup pairs beautifully with fresh grapefruit juice while a sparkling wine “float” lends a fun fizz. Serve these in champagne glasses and be sure to impress your guests.

Ingredients

1 cup water

Five long sprigs fresh rosemary, plus additional for garnish

1 cup sugar

2 cups fresh squeezed grapefruit juice

1 1/3 cup gin

1 cup sparkling wine

Instructions

  1. Combine water, rosemary sprigs, and sugar in a small saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and let cool for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Strain and discard the rosemary.
  4. Chill rosemary-syrup until ready to use.
  5. Fill a cocktail shaker half full of ice.
  6. Add 1/2 cup grapefruit juice, 1/3 cup gin, and 2 Tbs. rosemary-syrup.
  7. Shake well and strain into two Champagne glasses. Top each with a 2TB float of sparkling wine.
  8. Repeat 3 more times to make all 8 cocktails.

Notes

Rosemary-syrup will keep chilled in the fridge for several weeks. This recipe makes enough syrup for several cocktails.
