  1. Start with zesting the grapefruit. Reserve the zest for later.
  2. To a medium saucepan, add the juice from the same grapefruit, along with the pineapple, rosemary, water, and sugar. Place the saucepan over medium-high heat, and cook uncovered at a gentle simmer for 10 - 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Next, we can add the grapefruit zest to the saucepan. By now the pineapples should have softened as well, so using a wooden spoon or wooden tamper, mash the pieces of pineapple to release its juices and flavour.
  4. Place a sieve over a bowl and strain the mixture, using the back of a spoon to press out as much liquid from the mixture into the bowl as possible. Let this cool off completely, first on the counter, then in the fridge.
  5. To make the drinks, divide the ice between the glasses and for each cup add 1 part of the flavoured syrup, 1 part grapefruit juice, 2 parts carbonated water. Garnish with grapefruit wedges, and rosemary sprigs, and enjoy!


  • Make-ahead: the simple syrup can be made ahead and stored in a glass jar in the fridge for up to 3 days.


  • The drink can be stored in a glass jar in the fridge for up to 3 days.

This is so good!!! The combination of grapefruit and rosemary is a dream.
I used frozen pineapple, because I couldn't get it fresh, and that worked out just as good.

I made this twice already and find it very nice and refreshing. I used orange instead of the grapefruit juice when putting the drink together in order to use up those oranges.

Mmm love the idea for oranges, Constanze, thanks!

Délicieux ! Très frais. Un peu de soleil dans le verre sous la pluie. Les enfants ( 6 et 7 ans) ont adoré.

This was such a nice, fresh drink! I also tried to swap out one part carbonated water with one part gin, and it turned out really well too. :)
