Scale

Ingredients

Spiced Simple Syrup:

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 cinnamon sticks

For Two Cocktails:

  • 3 tablespoons of the spiced syrup (add more, to taste)
  • ⅓ cup freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice
  • 1 cup cold sparkling rosé wine
  • Grapefruit slices, for garnish
  • Additional star anise and cinnamon sticks, for garnish

Instructions

For the Simple Syrup:

  1. Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  2. Simmer for a minute and then add the spices.
  3. Remove from the heat and allow the syrup to cool to room temperature. Discard the spices before using.

For Two Cocktails:

  1. First, make sure all your ingredients are very cold. There is no ice in this cocktail, so you want everything icy cold.
  2. Divide the spiced syrup and grapefruit juice between two champagne flutes or coupe glasses. Stir to combine.
  3. Top off each glass with the sparkling wine and stir gently to combine. Garnish as desired and serve immediately.
