Non-Alcoholic Maple & Grapefruit Cocktail
2/3 ounce maple syrup (real, not Mrs Butterworths!)
3 ounces freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, strained
3 ounces ginger ale (or ginger beer if you like things stronger)
This cocktail can be prepared in a shaker or directly in a glass depending on your method of mixology. To start, combine grapefruit juice and maple syrup. Stir or shake until syrup is dissolved. Pour into glass and add ginger ale, stirring gently to combine. Garnish and enjoy!
If making this drink for a crowd, canned or bottled grapefruit juice will do just fine, though it won't have that freshly squeezed punch. You can keep the syrup and juice pre-combined, just make sure to shake or stir before adding the ginger ale to serve. Try filling glasses prior to guests arriving and letting them top things off with the ginger ale when they arrive!
