A hugely popular summer flavour in France, where it is mixed with crisp, chilled rosé wine, MONIN Pink Grapefruit syrup is used to make the top-selling summer drink French Rosé. Originally called the ‘forbidden fruit’, the grapefruit tree is a citrus tree – a hybrid of the pomelo and sweet orange - first grown in Barbados in the 18th century. The flesh of the grapefruit varies in hue from white to, soft pink, to ruby red, with the flavour varying relatively to the colour and variety from acidic and sour to sweet and tart. The balanced sweet/sour flavour of pink grapefruit works well in both savoury and sweet salads, combined with ingredients such as coriander, chilli, other citrus fruit, shellfish, and salad leaves. It also makes refreshing mousses, sorbets and jellies. With a subtle smell of fresh pink grapefruit (notes of grapefruit peel), our MONIN Pink Grapefruit syrup will make uplifting summer cooler cocktails, punches, smoothies and teas.
