Grapefruit Mojitos

Grapefruit Mojitos | Dressed In Orange

 

June is the end of grapefruit season in California, so I decided to take advantage by making grapefruit mojitos.  I used the same recipe I used when making blood orange mojitos, but instead of sugar, I used mint-infused simple syrup.  This was a great mid-afternoon cocktail for a sunny weekend.

To make infused simple syrup, just combine equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan. Over low heat, stir frequently until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and as the mixture cools, add your herbs. I put in a generous handful of orange mint sprigs.  Let steep until completely cool.

Happy weekend!
