Pink Grapefruit Mimosa with Rosemary Syrup

For the Rosemary Syrup:
 1 cup water
 1 cup sugar
 3 fresh rosemary sprigs
For the Drinks:
 1 bottle (750ml) dry champagne, chilled
 2 cups fresh pink grapefruit juice, plus more as needed
 Smaller sprigs of rosemary for garnish
 Pink sanding sugar, for rims
 Scant amount of honey
For the Rosemary Syrup:

In a small saucepan set over medium heat, bring the water and sugar to a simmer.


Allow the sugar to dissolve, stirring.


Add the rosemary sprigs and stir.


Remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let steep for 15 minutes.


Remove the rosemary sprigs and discard.

For the drinks:

In a small bowl, add pink sanding sugar.


Place a small amount of honey on your finger or the back of a spoon and line the rim of the glass in honey (the sugar will stick much better and won’t get wet, causing it to dissolve)


Dip champagne flutes in the sanding sugar, coating all the way around.


Fill eight glasses just under half full with champagne.


Top each with about ¼ cup of grapefruit juice and 2 teaspoons of rosemary syrup.


Add a bit more juice or champagne, whichever you prefer.


Garnish with the smaller rosemary sprigs, candied grapefruit peel or small slices of fresh grapefruit and serve.
