What you’ll need to make this paloma mocktail recipe
You’ll need the following to make this drink:
- Rosemary simple syrup: you can find my rosemary simple syrup recipe here. You want your syrup to be cool, or at least room temperature. So I suggest making your simple syrup at least a couple hours before you need it.
- Grapefruit juice: I prefer to make my own grapefruit juice. I squeeze and strain to remove any seeds or pulp. To save time, you can also use boxed grapefruit juice.
- Sparking water: this adds some bubbles to the drink. If you don’t need to make it a mocktail, you can replace with champagne or sparkling wine.
- Fresh rosemary: this is for a garnish. It’s optional, but makes the final drink look very nice.
- Fresh grapefruit: this is also a garnish, and also optional, but I encourage it.
- Make it a cocktail: if you’d prefer to make this a cocktail, simply replace the sparking water with Prosecco or another sparking wine.
