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.
You’ll be tickled pink with the sweet sour, fragrant flavour of MONIN Pink Grapefruit syrup, which will make uplifting summer cooler cocktails, punches, smoothies and teas.
Bright and cloudy pink-red.
Subtle smell of fresh pink grapefruit with notes of grapefruit peel and flower. Sweet and juicy taste, refreshing harmony between bitterness and acidity of pink grapefruit.
