During winter it’s hard to find flavors that really pop. Luckily, citrus fruits are in their prime and grapefruit is a great way to bring life, color and zing to your wintry mix. Not to mention the health benefits of fresh grapefruit and its ability to speed up the metabolism when taken before a meal. And because it’s winter I’ve decided to add a salted caramel rim for extra comfort. The warmth of the caramel is a great way to compliment the bitterness of the grapefruit as well as the spicy, earthy lemon undertones of the black pepper and thyme simple syrup.
