Pink Grapefruit Star Anise & Prosecco Cocktail


Prep time:
Serves:
20 minutes
2 persons

Ingredients for Cocktail:

60ml Pink Grapefruit Juice

30ml Gin

60ml Anise Sugar Syrup

300ml Prosecco 

Ice

Ingredients for Anise Sugar Syrup:

100g Granulated Sugar

200ml Water

5 Star Anise

Method:

 

1. First of all, lets make the sugar syrup. In a small pan combine sugar water and lightly crushed star anise.

2. Bring it to the boil and simmer for 10 min over a medium heat.

3. Cool it down, pour it through the sieve into a container or a jar and refrigerate. You can keep it in a fridge for couple of weeks for further use.

4. Now the cocktail – in a shaker put few ice cubes, grapefruit juice, anise sugar syrup and gin.

5. Shake it well.

6. Pour it in the chilled champagne glasses and top up with Prosecco and enjoy!

Tips:

1. Use your own freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. It has better flavour and the aromatic oils from the grapefruit skin will also make a huge difference.

2. Always use good quality gin. I prefer Hendricks.

3. Use few slices of grapefruit for a garnish.
