2 tablespoons ginger, peeled then grated
1 cup / 240 ml water
very scant 1/2 cup / 95 ml fresh lime juice - 2 juicy limes
1 1/3 cups / 310 ml fresh grapefruit juice - 2 juicy grapefruits
In a small saucepan, over medium heat, stir together the sugar, ginger, and water. Simmer for 5 minutes, transfer to a glass bowl or cup, and place in the freezer for a few minutes to cool.
Strain the ginger into a pitcher along with the lime and grapefruit juices. You can either strain the citrus juices or leave them pulpy, just be sure to catch any seeds before they go in. Stir and taste, if you want a bit more sugar, go for it, but I find this plenty sweet. Serve straight in a tiny chilled glass with ice. Or use a splash to freshen up a glass of sparkling water.
Makes about 2 cups / 1 pint.
