1

Peel the grapefruits and mince the whole peel, including the white part. Place the peel in a quart jar with the coriander seed and alcohol. Seal for 1 week.

2

Put the sugar in a small pan and heat over medium heat until it turns light brown. Remove from the heat and carefully add water. Stir until the sugar dissolves.

3

Strain the peels and coriander from the alcohol and discard. Add the caramelized sugar. Return it to the jar and let it stand until the liquid is clear, about 1 hour, then bottle for use.
