  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint
  • 125 g (4 oz) caster sugar
  • 2 pieces of stem ginger in syrup, finely chopped

  • Remove the skin from the grapefruits then, holding over a bowl to collect the juice, use a sharp knife to cut into segments between the pith. Place the segments in a serving bowl and chill.
  • To make the ginger syrup, pour the grapefruit juice into a jug to make 200 ml (7 fl oz), then place in a saucepan with the sugar, stem ginger and stem ginger syrup. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 8–10 minutes. Transfer to a heatproof jug and chill for 10 minutes to cool.
  • Pour the cooled syrup over the grapefruit and stir in the mint. Serve immediately.
