A beautiful gin and grapefruit cocktail with a dash of salt!


With all the beautiful citrus available right now, we keep having to find new ways to use it.  Luckily the drinks that we end up with have some beautiful rich pink colors, which look as amazing as they taste. Hopefully you will like these pink drinks, too! The Rosemary’s Blush uses fresh grapefruit juice and rosemary to pair up with gin.

Gin and Grapefruit Cocktail

A dash of salt helps to block the bitter compounds in the grapefruit juice and enhance the complex flavors of the gin. We used Monkey 47, a dry gin from the Black Forest region of Germany, which is a fantastic strong gin with a deep spicy complexity that stood up well to the strong flavors of the grapefruit.

What Ingredients are Needed for the Rosemary’s Blush Cocktail?

  • Sea Salt
  • Lemon Juice
  • Honey Simple Syrup
  • Gin
  • Grapefruit Juice
  • Rosemary Sprigs


The honey syrup provides a rich smoothness and a deep sweetness that makes this gin and grapefruit cocktail exceptionally drinkable.  Sweet and bright, with a bit of a briny flavor from the salt, the Rosemary’s Blush is like a boozy brûléed grapefruit in a glass. If you love the combination of rosemary, gin and grapefruit, try out our Rosemary Grapefruit Moscow Mule!
