What better way way to ring in the new year with good food, lots of laughs with wonderful friends and of course fabulous cocktails!
For this year's New Year's Eve party, I decided to make a little sweet and tart apéritif with a hint of bitterness. Since my Persian roots always tend to pop out everywhere, first thing that came into my mind was rose. Of course I always have some Persian rose water in my pantry and when I saw these beautiful pink grapefruits at the supermarket, I knew excatly what I was going to make.
A quick simple syrup made with agave syrup, rose water and the juice and zest of a grapefruit makes the delicious base for this beautiful cocktail. ANd let me tell you, there's no need to wait for New Year's to try it out.
If you're not so fond of alcohol, give this a try with some tonic water or ginger beer. It'll be equally yummy and beautiful!
