Grapefruit Simple Syrup for Drinks

Ingredients:  – Sugar – Water – Grapefruit 

Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.

Using a vegetable peeler, remove 2 large strips of peel from the outside of the grapefruit. Add grapefruit peel to the pot and let the mixture cool to room temperature. 

Remove peels using a fork or pour the syrup through a fine mesh strainer. Refrigerate syrup until ready to use.

Use grapefruit syrup in place of simple syrup in a margarita or make this delicious Paloma Mocktail.
