This light, refreshing tequila-based cocktail is perfect for the warmer months. The rosemary-infused simple syrup adds a subtle pine flavor to the citrus-forward drink and gets finished with a splash of bubbly seltzer.



  1. Combine the sugar, 1/2 cup water, 3 rosemary sprigs and the grapefruit zest in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and set the syrup aside to cool, at least 1 hour.
  2. Strain the syrup into a 64-ounce jar. Add the grapefruit juice, tequila, lime juice and remaining 5 rosemary sprigs and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until cold, at least 2 hours.
  3. To serve, pour the seltzer into the jar and stir (do not shake). Pour into glasses filled with ice and garnish with rosemary sprigs.
