It’s Friday… Relax with Grapefruit Mojitos

  • 2 large pink grapefruits
  • 2-3 limes
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3-4 ounces white rum
  • a handful of mint leave
  • sparking water
  1. Squeeze the juice out of the grapefruits and limes. Filter through a fine mesh strainer to remove seeds and pulp. Stir the honey in with the juices until dissolved (sometimes I give the mixture a few seconds in the microwave to get the honey really incorporated, otherwise it clumps together when you add the ice).
  2. For one drink, vigorously shake the following in a cocktail shaker: a handful of ice, half of the rum, and half of the juice mixture which should be about ⅔ cup of juice, and several torn mint leaves. If you don’t have a shaker, use a jar with a tight fitting lid or just stir it all up in a glass.
  3. Pour the drink into the glass with or without the ice (your call! we leave the ice in). Give it all a good stir to get the mint leaves going and top it off with sparking water.
