Total Time Prep Yield


Honey-Cardamom Syrup



Cook's Notes

Tart grapefruit is called for here; if using a sweeter variety, swap half the grapefruit juice for lime juice.

This recipe is scalable for a crowd: Place the ingredients in a large pitcher. Fill halfway with ice; stir with a long spoon until outside of pitcher is frosty. Strain into glasses; serve with garnishes.
