Rosemary Infused Grapefruit Vodka Cocktail

You guys, I think this is my 122nd grapefruit cocktail on A Bubbly Life. Maybe I am exaggerating. Little bit.  There is a reason I love to use grapefruit in cocktails.  I do not like sweet cocktails, grapefruit is so pretty to take photos of and Arizona has an abundance of citrus.  We planted a grapefruit tree and JUST GOT OUR FIRST GRAPEFRUITS!!!  So, I absolutely had to do another grapefruit cocktail! However, my husband (Hi, Nick, love you bebe) planted a white grapefruit tree or yellow? I dont know what it is called, I could google it but…  Either way, it is not pink, and I am like hi, husband of nearly 12 years, have you met me? 

Then, I was like oooh I can get more colors in a photograph.  So, Nick is forgiven.  And, honestly I dont know if it is picking it off our own tree or whatnot but the plain grapefruit tastes better than the pink I get from the store.  Also, maybe I should learn the proper name, which is probably just “grapefruit” Anyhow, cocktail time.

1 part Vodka
2 parts Freshly Squeezed Grapefruit Juice
1 teaspoon (or more if you like sweeter) Rosemary Infused Syrup*
Lime slice & Rosemary Sprig for Garnish
Salt for rim (I used pink 😉

*We do not eat much sugar around here, so I used agave to make my rosemary syrup.  Add approximately 1 cup of agave syrup to a pot, get it hot, but not to a full boil, add a couple sprigs of rosemary and let cool for about 30-45 minutes.  Agave syrup still is sugar, but it has a lower glycemic index so that is why we use it instead.  (I’m not a doctor & not making any health claims, so don’t sue me. Thanks.)
