SPARKLING GRAPEFRUIT, LIME AND ROSEMARY MOJITO
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
80 ml (1/3 cup) granulated sugar
1 ruby grapefruit
250 ml (1 cup) grapefruit juice
2 rosemary sprigs
250 ml (1 cup) sparkling water or lime flavoured sparkling water
2 shots of rum or vodka
20 g mint leaves
Handful of ice
Pour the granulated sugar on a plate. Swipe the rim of the glasses with a lime wedge and dip the rim in the granulated sugar. Set aside.
Peel the grapefruit using a vegetable peeler or sharp knife. Cut the grapefruit into segments.
Divide the segments into two Mojito glasses. In a medium sized pot, pour in the remaining sugar along with the grapefruit juice. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved and the juice has thickened. Set aside to cool.
Thinly slice the lime and add to the glass, along with ice cubes and a rosemary sprig.
Gently pour the rum or gin into a glass, add the grapefruit syrup and fill with sparkling water.
Garnish with mint leaves and serve cold.
