Directions

  1. Using a vegetable peeler remove the zest from 3 of the grapefruit and put the zest in a jar.
  2. Pour over the vodka and leave to infuse for at least 24 hours.
  3. Cut all the grapefruit in half and juice - if making ahead of time, freeze the juice until it's needed.
  4. Pick the leaves from the basil and add the stalks to a small saucepan with the sugar and 1 cup of water. Gently heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved, then cool, strain and chill until needed.
  5. Put half the basil leaves in a jug, pour over the vodka, 1 1/4 cups of basil stock syrup and the grapefruit juice and stir.
  6. Fill 6 glasses with ice, the remaining basil and a little grapefruit zest (use the stuff from the vodka), and fill with cocktail mix.
