How to make a grapefruit mojito
Making a flavored mojito is really just a simple twist on the classic. You can add just a touch of grapefruit by garnishing with grapefruit wedges, but I really love the flavor (and gorgeous color) of adding pure grapefruit juice to this mojito. It’s not too sweet, but you can certainly add additional simple syrup (or superfine sugar) for a sweeter drink.
If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, just use a picture or large glass and stir well. You’ll still make an absolutely delicious grapefruit mojito!
Also, to make simple syrup, add equal parts water and sugar to a saucepan. Heat until sugar has dissolved (mixture is clear). Remove from heat and allow to cool. You can keep simple syrup refrigerated in an airtight container for up to a month.
- 6 fresh mint leaves

- In a cocktail shaker, muddle together mint leaves, lime juice, and simple syrup. Add the grapefruit juice and white rum. Fill with ice and shake. Strain over ice-filled cocktail glass.
