Bad’Az Simple Syrup

Some folks are crazy for grapefruit and some aren’t. If you are, then this is a real treat! The simple syrup with Bad’Az Za’Atar elevates a mocktail to something quite grown-up and really special.

Add Tequilla for a twist to a Paloma cocktail, or combine it with some Prosecco (or Champagne) for a herbaceous Bellini.

Easy to make a double batch to have some on hand as a quick hostess gift!
