Ingredients

WINE SYRUP

1 cup sauvignon blanc or other dry white wine
1 cup sugar
1 sprig fresh rosemary
2 sprigs fresh thyme
3 strips grapefruit peel (a little attached pith is fine)

THE COCKTAIL

1 ½ ounces gin
1 ounce wine syrup
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce grapefruit juice
2 dashes citrus or orange bitters
2 ounces prosecco or other dry sparkling wine, to top
1 grapefruit twist, for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make the wine syrup: Add all ingredients for the syrup to a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat, stirring often, until sugar is dissolved and syrup starts to bubble a little (about 5 minutes). Allow to cool to room temperature. Strain and refrigerate. (I'm guessing this stuff will keep a few weeks in the fridge.)
2
Add all ingredients except the Prosecco and the garnish to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until very cold. Fine strain into a chilled flute or coupe. Top with Prosecco, garnish with the twist, and serve.
