Grapefruit Pepper Cooler
Whats more relaxing than a tall cool glass of thirst-quenching drink? Nothing! So I am sharing this utterly easy drink that I am have been sipping on all summer long. Apart from that, I am so happy with how the pictures for this recipe came out. I am trying to work on my food photography a bit these days.

- 1 grapefruit, sliced for garnish
- 2 rosemary sprigs, for garnish

For the Pepper Syrup

- 2 cups water
- 2 tbsp whole peppercorns, use 1 tbsp if you want the syrup less peppery
