A simple mint syrup takes the place of crushed leaves in this grapefruit-mint mojito. Be sure to add fresh sprigs on top for a dash of color and heady aroma. Tall, slender glasses and long stirring sticks impart a modern elegance.

    This was great. I followed the measurements perfectly and then tried to play with the proportions (ie more alcohol.) I think it works best if you stick to the recipe. I added a pinch of lemon to each glass. I used all of the excess grapefruit, not just the zest, to infuse the rum. I left it in the fridge over night and it was way better. I also left a few sprigs of mint in the simple syrup overnight.

    I'm wondering how long you could leave the grapefruit in the rum. I'm thinking it would make a nice gift with the recipe attached. Thanks
