Grapefruit Simple Syrup
Juice from one fresh Homegrown Organic (HGO) Farms Grapefruit
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
1 fresh organic HGO Farms Grapefruit
1 fresh organic HGO Farms Navel Orange
1 fresh organic red apple (Honeycrisp variety recommended)
1 bottle pinot grigio or dry white wine of your choice
1 bottle prosecco or sparkling white wine of your choice
Prep Time: 2–3 hours, or overnight
Servings: 6–8 (16 oz) drinks
1 To make the grapefruit simple syrup, add juice of 1 grapefruit, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup water to a saucepan on medium-heat. Cook the mixture and stir until sugar completely dissolves. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
2 In a large pitcher, add 1 sliced grapefruit, 1 roughly chopped apple, and 1 sliced Navel orange (no need to remove peels). Cover with entire bottle of pinot grigio, making sure that fruit is entirely immersed in the wine.
3 Add 1 cup of the grapefruit simple syrup and cover pitcher. Place in refrigerator for at least a few hours, ideally overnight, to allow the fruit to soak up the flavor of the wine.
4 When ready to serve, remove from fridge and combine with 1 bottle of prosecco. Stir gently and serve with pieces of fruit in each glass or strained. Enjoy!
Tip: Use the extra grapefruit simple syrup in coffees or iced teas!
