Why did we use Fever-Tree Sparkling Grapefruit?

Because it is made with fresh grapefruit juice from Florida’s hand-picked pink grapefruits. A powerful explosion of fresh grapefruit on the front end, carefully balanced with soft pink grapefruit flowery undertones. The ideal level of carbonation and the presence of genuine juice.
