Grapefruit - Strawberry Sips

Pink Chocolate

Grapefruit – Strawberry Sips, a delicious and beautiful virgin cocktail, and the syrup can be added to ice cream as well as beverages….. the ultimate Spring drink.

Grapefruit - Strawberry Sips
For the strawberry syrup:

1 cup strawberries, cut into wedges

1/4 cup cane sugar
For the drink:

Natural grapefruit soda - Gus or San Pelligrino brands are nice

Wide strips of orange peel - be sure to trim off any bitter white pith
Pour enough water in a small saucepan to just cover the berries and sugar, and turn flame to medium-high.
Stirring occasionally, bring to boil and then skim off any foam which forms.
Skim and stir intermittently, for about 10 minutes, checking for color saturation in the cooking liquid.
Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
Pour liquid through a sieve and mash fruit with the back of a spoon to extract their juices, discarding the pulp.
Chill and store for up to one week. 
Can be added to ice cream as well as beverages...
Mix fruit soda and syrup in a measuring cup to taste, I used 1 tbsp syrup for every 12 ounce soda bottle.
Pour into glasses.
Thread orange twist onto cocktail stirrers, add spirit, and stir to enjoy!
