Grapefruit Cardamom Gin Fizz

The days are longer, the weather warmer and the drinks stronger (hopefully!)

With more time to relax and indulge this summer, take the time to perfect the grapefruit variation on the classic Gin Fizz.

Here’s how:

Grapefruit Cardamom Gin Fizz

Serves 2

Infused Gin and Rosemary Syrup

1 cup gin
6 cardamom pods
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 rosemary sprigs


2 oz rosemary syrup
3 oz infused gin
1/2 cup grapefruit juice
splash of prosecco
rosemary sprigs
grapefruit peel


  1. In a small jar with an airtight lid add gin and cardamom pods. Seal and store for 24 hours.
  2. In a small saucepan bring sugar, water and 2 rosemary sprigs to a simmer until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. Remove the rosemary and use right away, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  3. To make the cocktail add rosemary syrup, infused gin and grapefruit juice over ice in a cocktail mixer and stir. Using a strainer, divide the mixture in two and pour directly into glasses filled with fresh ice. Top with prosecco and garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a grapefruit peel.
