serves 8

Rosemary syrup
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup rosemary leaves, plus sprigs for garnish
1 bottle (750ml) dry sparkling wine or champagne, chilled
2 c. freshly juiced grapefruit juice, plus more as needed

Combine water, sugar, and rosemary leaves in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat and let syrup steep, about 30 minutes. Remove rosemary and allow syrup to cool.

To serve, fill eight glasses just under half full with champagne. Top each with about ¼ cup of grapefruit juice, and 1 tablespoon of rosemary syrup. Garnish with rosemary sprigs and grapefruit wedge and serve.
