Rosemary Grapefruit Bourbon Smash
A Rosemary Grapefruit Bourbon Smash is an easy cocktail full of grapefruit and rosemary flavor. (Adjust sweetness and bourbon based on your preferences.)
rosemary simple syrup
(enough for about 6-7 drinks)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp rosemary leaves
for one drink:
  • 8oz grapefruit juice (fresh preferred, but bottled works too!)
  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1.5 oz rosemary simple syrup (add more if you like 'em sweet)
  • 2 oz club soda
for the simple syrup
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently until sugar has dissolved. Let the mixture simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until reduced by half. Remove from heat and let it cool completely before using.
for each drink
  1. Fill each glass halfway with crushed ice. Add the grapefruit juice, bourbon, and simple syrup. For the club soda, I wrote that you'll need two ounces per cocktail, but that's really just an estimate. Basically you can just use it to top off each glass.
  2. Enjoy!
