Rosemary Grapefruit Spritzer

grapefruit

gin or vodka

club soda

1 tbsp sugar

Rosemary Simple Syrup

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

3 sprigs of fresh rosemary

Bring to a boil, stirring as the sugar dissolves. Simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat to steep for 10-15 minutes.

To make the spritzer, wet the rim of the glasses with a wet paper towel and rim the glasses with sugar and grapefruit zest mixed together. Fill the glass with ice. Add 2 oz of gin or vodka. Squeeze in the juice of half a grapefruit. Add an equal amount of club soda. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary!
