1 1/2 cups sugar

1 bunch fresh tarragon 

One 750-milliliter bottle dry rose wine (preferably one with a deep pink color) 

1/4 cup grapefruit-flavored seltzer 

Grapefruit slices, for garnish 


  1. Add the sugar, tarragon and 1 1/2 cups water to a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring, until the sugar is just dissolved. Remove from the heat and let steep 15 minutes. Strain the syrup and refrigerate until cold.
  2. Add the rose wine, grapefruit seltzer, 1/2 cup simple syrup and a few slices grapefruit to a pitcher (save the remaining simple syrup for another use). Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
