How to Make Grapefruit-Lemonade
- Prepare the SIMPLE SYRUP: Combine the sugar and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Stir well and set over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil then reduce to a slow boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until all of the sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool to room temperature or set in an ice bath to chill quickly.
- When ready to serve the beverage, combine the lemon juice, grapefruit juice, and the sugar syrup in a medium pitcher. If desired, the mixture can be diluted with a little bit of filtered water, to taste.
- Add a grapefruit slice to each serving, fill with ice cubes and garnish with fresh herb of choice.
