  • 1 oz Grapefruit Juice 
  • .5 oz Rosemary Honey Syrup*

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake 8-10 seconds or until the shaker is frosty.  

Strain in glass over fresh ice.  

*Rosemary and Honey Simple Syrup 

  • 1 c Water 
  • 1 c Honey 
  • Bunch of Fresh Rosemary 

Combine honey and water in a pot over medium heat and stir to dissolve honey.
