Ginger Grapefruit Rosemary Tonic

Ginger Grapefruit Rosemary Tonic

makes 1 drink

1 large grapefruit

1 piece of ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

2 sprigs rosemary

1 lime wedge

ice

In a kettle over high heat, bring 2 cups water to a boil. When water is boiling, pour into a small bowl containing ginger pieces. Cover and let steep for 20 minutes. If you prefer a lighter ginger taste, remove pieces and cool — if you want a stronger flavor, do not remove ginger and cool.

Halve grapefruit and juice each half, set aside. Place 1 sprig rosemary in the bottom of the serving glass and, using a muddler or wooden spoon, bruise herbs until fragrant. Remove rosemary from glass, fill with ice and pour in 1/2 cup grapefruit juice. Add 1/2 cup ginger infused water, a squeeze of lime and stir to combine. Serve with a sprig of rosemary.
