Sparkling Pink Grapefruit, fresh rosemary and Champagne Cocktails

A refreshing and tart cocktail that combines some truly festive flavours with a generous dose of champagne. Whilst the rosemary syrup requires a little early preparation, the cocktail itself is effortlessly easy and is sure to be a party favourite. Rosemary is one of my favourite flavours and can add such earthiness to the subtle zest of the grapefruit, it’s a little unexpected but always adored by guests.
