Recipe | Sparkling Pink Grapefruit, rosemary & 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.



  • Pink grapefruit slices
  • Edible gold dust
  • 100ml grapefruit Juice
  • 20ml rosemary syrup (see below)
  • 100ml of your favourite champagne

For the rosemary syrup

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 4 sprigs of rosemary
  1. Place the rosemary, sugar and water into a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously until all the sugar has dissolved
  2. Leave to simmer on a medium heat for a further 2 minutes then to cool for about 30 minutes
  3. Remove the rosemary sprigs and sieve the syrup into a jar

For the cocktail

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with the grapefruit juice and rosemary syrup and shake
  2. Pour it through a strainer into ice cold glasses.
  3. Top the glass with champagne and enjoy

For a festive touch

Spray a little edible gold dust over grapefruit slices for a truly magical touch!
