grapefruit mojito


My DVR is so backed up after being on vacation last week. I really hate how all the good shows come on in the fall so I feel overwhelmed with the amount of shows I want to catch up on if I miss a week. Some of my favorites right now are The Good Wife, The Lying Game, The Playboy Club and Law & Order: SVU (I miss Stabler). My sister-in-law just introduced me to the show Suits on USA and it's moving up on my list of favorite TV shows. And there were so many pilots that aired last week that I want to watch but there's definitely not enough time in the day. I always find new shows mid season and usually wait for them to show up on Netflix to watch the entire season.

While sitting on the couch today trying to catch up on my shows I was craving a grapefruit mojito after having one last week. I don't usually drink mid-day unless I'm watching football and drinking beer but this grapefruit mojito was super refreshing and not sickly sweet like so many mojitos. I'm a huge fan of grapefruit cocktails because it pairs perfectly with vodka, rum or tequila. And I've decided these mason jar drinks are perfect for tailgates because you can make the drinks at home (without ice), seal them and store them in your cooler. If you want to move to a different tailgate but don't want to have an open container, you can re-seal it and carry it with you.

Grapefruit Mojito
makes 1 drink

about 12 large mint leaves
1/8 c. crushed ice
1 tsp sugar
juice of 1 lime
1/4 c. fresh grapefruit juice
1.5 oz simple syrup
1.5 oz rum or caracha
1/8 c. soda water
ice cubes

Muddle the mint leaves, sugar and crushed ice together. Add the lime juice, grapefruit juice and simple syrup and muddle one more time. Add rum and shake. Add ice and soda water to the top of the drink and enjoy!

  2. Great drink! But I dont think you can go wrong with grapefruit juice and alcohol-especially vodka or rum! My roommate and I are almost embarrassed about how excited we are for the Fall shows to be back! My new favorite-Revenge on ABC. Uh.mazing!
