Grapefruit syrup is one of the most versatile syrups you can make. It provides zesty punch, and also pairs well with gin and white rum. Or you can enjoy it in a non-alcoholic soda with a hit of fresh citrus.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g grapefruit
500g caster (superfine) sugar

Method

  1. Grate the zest of the grapefruit, then cut off the remaining skin and pith. Finely chop the flesh. Combine the zest, flesh and sugar in a zip-lock bag, jiggling them around in the bag until well mixed. Press out as much air from the bag as you can, then seal it. Let it sit at room temperature for 24 hours, gently pressing from time to time and shuffling the ingredients to help dissolve the sugar. Strain the syrup through a fine-meshed sieve, discarding the solids. The syrup can be stored in a jar or bottle in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
