Friday Night Cocktail

The idea of something with gin and grapefruit and rosemary has been floating around my head for a while, it’s not a very original idea but I my love of gin is well known and I’ve become slightly obsessed with grapefruit at the moment. So this seemed like a good way of combining the two.


So this weekend, I made some rosemary syrup. A cup of water, a cup of caster sugar, a bunch of rosemary. Heat until the sugar has dissolved and leave the rosemary to steep for about 3 hours. Strain and put in the fridge.

This is what I ended up with. I originally used pink grapefruit and that was great but I actually ended up preferring white grapefruit.  You can also make the drink and then divide into two champagne flutes and top up with fizz for something more festive!



50ml gin

120ml grapefruit juice

50ml rosemary syrup


Shake with ice

Strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with rosemary.
