Serves 2 (about 3/4 cup)

Bitterness rating: 4/10. Though we love the blushing pink color from Ruby Red grapefruit, you also can use a yellow-fleshed variety, which will likely be less sweet. We find that a London-style gin works best here; the floral flavors of more botanical styles (such as new-wave gins) are likely to overpower the taste of the grapefruit.


  • 3 (2-inch) Ruby Red grapefruit peel strips, plus 2/3 cup fresh juice (from 2 medium grapefruit), divided
  • 1 (2-inch) rosemary sprig, plus more for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup (2 2/3 oz.) London dry gin (such as Beefeater)
  • 2/3 cup tonic water, chilled
