1 cup sugar
1 cup water
4 fresh rosemary sprigs
1-1/2 ounces grapefruit vodka
3/4 ounce grapefruit juice
1/2 ounce lime juice
1/2 ounce rosemary simple syrup
For rosemary simple syrup – add sugar, water and rosemary sprigs to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar has completely dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to stand for 30 minutes.
Pour syrup through strainer and into mason jar or other container that can become airtight. Cover and chill. Syrup may be stored in refrigerator up to 1 month.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add all ingredients. Shake to completely combine.
