Grapefruit Goodness

The other day I saw that grapefruits were on sale and I was really craving a refreshing fruit juice. So, I bought some grapefruits, rosemary, and some sparkling water to make this luscious concoction.
First, I squeezed about 6 grapefruits, strained into a canister, then I took a whole pack of rosemary and pounded the steams with the back of my carving knife to release the aromas. Then added the rosemary to the grapefruit. I then put the juice in refrigerator to let steep for a couple hours. In the meantime, I made a quick simple syrup using a 1/4 a cup of pure cane sugar and a 1/4 cup of water, bring to a boil until the sugar dissolves, let cool then add to grapefruit juice.
Finally I filled a glass with ice and poured half the glass with the sparkling water then the rest with the tasty juice. It definitely quenched my craving.

  2. Great recipe and that is the cutest juicer I have ever seen! I have a funky old electric one that works great, but very noisy which is not so happy on a weekend morning...
