Grapefruit-Juniper Soda

The Majestic began making their fruit-forward sodas as a healthier alternative to bottled sodas, and they haven’t looked back. Sodas on offer rotate regularly, from a dessert-like orange cream to this grown-up grapefruit-juniper soda.


16 oz. hot water
16 oz. plus 1 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. dried juniper berries
1 grapefruit, juiced
4 oz. club soda


Make a simple syrup by mixing the boiling water with the sugar, stir until the sugar fully dissolves. Peel the grapefruit with a vegetable peeler. It should have the outer layer of grapefruit skin with as little pith as possible. Muddle the dried juniper berries with 1 tablespoon of sugar. Add the grapefruit peels and juniper mixture to hot simple syrup. Allow the peels and berries to steep overnight in the fridge. Add the grapefruit juice to the syrup and strain through a fine chinois strainer or cheesecloth. Add 2 ounces of the syrup to a glass, top with ice and fill with club soda.
