Remove from the heat and stir in the grapefruit zest and rosemary.
Cover and steep for 1-2 hours.
Strain into a container with a lid for future storage.

Make sure you have enough time up-front before attempting this recipe! It takes at least an hour to make the syrup due to the steeping time. But once you make time, it is totally worth it! This cocktail turned out amazing. It has a fruity tropical flavor and kind of tastes like an alcoholic sour patch kid. The syrup will make enough for 12-16 servings so you can save it if you have extra. It will be good in the fridge for about a month in a sealed container.
