One Year Ago: Indian Curry Pizza
A Wilde Original
I decided to go with fresh grapefruit juice for my version of Ting. Since grapefruit juice has a high water content, it wasn't as tart as the St Kitts soda. This is when I decided to add the citric acid. If you want to make Ting a little faster, buy a frozen can of grapefruit concentrate. This will has the tartness without having to add acid. Just combine 2-4 tbsp concentrate with 3/4 cup seltzer.
Juice from 1 grapefruit (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tsp citric acid
Combine first three ingredients in a small saucepan and warm over low heat. Swirl until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and add citric acid. Stir to dissolve. Transfer grapefruit juice to a container and put in the fridge.
When ready for drinking time, combine 1/2 cup grapefruit juice liquid with 1/2 cup seltzer.
