Grapefruit Americano
It can be difficult to improve upon the classics, but we like this bright and fresh Grapefruit Americano recipe from Darren Leaney at Capitano in Melbourne.
  1. Build in a highball glass over cubed ice.
  2. Garnish with a pink grapefruit slice.
Recipe Notes

For the white grapefruit cordial:

  • 24g white grapefruit zest, microplaned
  • 240g caster sugar
  • 400ml white grapefruit juice
  • 200ml water
  • 12g citric acid

Add grapefruit zest to sugar, mix and leave for 10 minutes or so. Combine all ingredients in a jug and stir to dissolve sugar and acid. Strain through a superbag or muslin cloth.
