How to Make Grapefruit Mojitos:

In a large pitcher, muddle mint sprigs, grapefruit, and lime. Add club soda, simple syrup and rum then stir together. 

Pour into tall glasses filled with ice and serve, garnish with sugar around the rim, grapefruit wedges and mint sprig. 

Notes & Tips


  • Club Soda: You can substitute tonic water for the club soda if preferred but the taste will be slightly different. 
  • Simple Syrup: Honey syrup or agave nectar work well for substitutions to the simple syrup. 
  • Alcohol-free: Make a mojito mocktail by replacing the rum with more club soda. 

Expert Tips for Grapefruit Mojitos

  • Remove grapefruit and lime seeds before muddling so they don’t end up in a drink. 
  • It’s important to use white rum for a classic mojito taste. 
  • To get the sugar rimmed glass – place ½ cup of large sugar crystals on a plate and wet the rim of a glass with a grapefruit wedge. Dip the glass in the sugar then add ice and mojito. 
  • Tools needed – muddler, pitcher, cocktail stirrer.
