It’s not your usual weekend and you feel a bit fancy and want to go all out to impress someone or many people. well, I got the perfect recipe for you.
This grapefruit mocktail is absolutely stunning and flavoursome with the addition of the syrups from soda press co.
I personally love their syrups as they are organic and taste exactly as the promised flavours. My personal favourite is the pink grapefruit syrup. They have a huge range of flavours. Another great thing about soda press co is it is crafted for the soda stream.
I have created a mocktail recipe with an espuma froth that is so delicious, the only thing is you would need an espuma machine to do the froth but if you don’t have one, don’t worry about it, as this recipe can be made without the froth and it will be equally delicious. this is a refreshing mocktail that is not too sweet. its made with syrup and sparkling water or soda.
Refreshing Grapefruit Mocktail
Its light and fresh and only need 2 ingredients, Sparkling water or soda and the syrup. you can garnish it with thyme leaves, lemon and top up with ice
Then I created a dessert ravioli to go with it. Yes yes, you can make dessert ravioli as well. sounds fancy enough? I think so. I have made a jelly then shaped it like a ravioli then filled with chopped citrus fruit. This can be used as a canape or a dessert idea.
Can I use fresh grapefruit juice in this recipe?
Yes, you absolutely can, but you will need a lot more grapefruit juice to get the balance of flavour. Since the syrup I am using is concentrated, I only need a little bit. Also, the amount of gelatine needed will need to be adjusted as the acidity in the grapefruit will react very differently with gelatine.
