Grapefruit Spritzer with Tarragon Simple Syrup
This refreshing grapefruit spritzer is the perfect addition to any weekend brunch or cocktail party, especially when paired with our Crab Puffs. The light anise flavor of tarragon simple syrup complements the citrus-y cocktail by adding a fresh herbal note. A little bubbly makes this worthy of any special occasion — and there's nothing more festive than a spritz for the holidays.

FOR THE SPRITZER, COMBINE:
For the simple syrup, heat water, sugar, and tarragon in a saucepan over high to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Let syrup cool to room temperature; discard tarragon, and chill syrup until ready to use.
For the spritzer, combine Cava, grapefruit juice, and ½ cup simple syrup in a pitcher just before serving.
