   complements the bitter-tart taste of grapefruit. Use orange juice as
   a non-alcoholic option.

   1. In a 3-4 cup pan, combine sugar and 2/3 cup water. Boil,
   uncovered, over high heat until reduced to 1/2 cup. Gently twist
   lemon peel and drop into syrup; let col. If made ahead, cover and
   chill up to 3 days.
   2. With a sharp knife, cut peel and all white membrane from
   grapefruit. Over a bowl, cut between membranes to release fruit
   segments; squeeze juice from membrane into bowl. Discard membrane. If
   made ahead, cover and let stand up to 3 hours.
   3. Spoon fruit, juice, and syrup equally into 6 dessert bowls.
   Garnish with leaves. To each portion add to taste about 1 tablespoon
   gin or orange juice, and juice from lemon wedges.
