GRAPEFRUIT MOJITOS

I have always been hesitant to try cocktails that include a simple syrup, honestly just because it seemed like more work than it was worth… even with the name SIMPLE syrup. I’m ashamed to say my laziness kept me from enjoying some pretty delicious concoctions! A little work ahead of time saves you from having to muddle each drink and it gives a much more intense flavor. These mojitos incorporate a grapefruit infused rum (which we made ourselves), a mint infused simple syrup, fresh grapefruit juice and a splash of club soda. These are bright, refreshing and absolutely perfect for spring! The best part if that you can prepare all the ingredients far in advance and have them on-hand to enjoy whenever you like!
