grapefruit rosemary margarita.

With an abundance of grapefruit and no shortage of uses for them, I thought it would be great to try a new boozey grapefruit drink.  I usually drink my weight in greyhounds this time of year but since I was making a big plate of tacos post Runyon Canyon hike with my friend, Lisa, a margarita seemed like a better idea!  Plus - Lisa is a cocktail kind of girl and it was my first dinner in the new place.  Fresh rosemary simmered into a rosemary simple syrup made it refreshing....
