3½ ounces fresh ruby red grapefruit juice
½ ounce simple syrup

First, prep your adorable pink sugar by adding one drop of red food coloring to a small bowl of white sugar. Then, use the back of a to fork press food coloring into the sugar until no red dye is visible and sugar is pink. Rim your glasses and set to the side.
