Rosemary Grapefruit Sparkling Soda

Rosemary simple syrup is about to turn your drink menu upside down. You’re going to want to keep it in your fridge at all times, which won’t be hard because it stores easily for up to a month in a little mason jar! Cocktail or mocktail version is up to you but I’ve found that a fun alcohol free beverage is often welcomed and this is a great one! Simple and special, whether you make this just for yourself, guests or even a thoughtful little hostess gift..this is a special and makes everyone that enjoys it feel a little extra special. Special is special, and very, very nice.. right?
