In October 2009, just after we launched our new shop in York, we launched our first Grapefruit Vodka Mojito at a Tasting Evening. It was an outstanding success.
We have revisted this cocktail many times since and it is now made with our unique Grapefruitcello Liqueur 32%. This is a wonderfully fresh cocktail to taste and a great drink to start any evening!
- 2 measures Spiced Rum Liqueur 20%
- 2 measures Grapefruitcello Liqueur 32%
- 2 measures Soda Water
- 3-4 sprigs of mint
- Hearty squeeze of fresh lime
Gently crush mint in the bottom of the shaker glass, add a hearty squeeze of fresh lime, fill up with crushed or broken ice. Shake Spiced Rum, Grapefruitcello. Stain into a colins glass and add the soda. Top up with crushed ice if required and gently muddle ingredients together. Add straws and away you go!
Anything else I should know?
A little Mojito cocktail trivia to impress your friends: The original Mojito is a Cuban Mint Julep with lime and would be made with white rum, not our dark spiced rum as we are suggesting here. During US Prohibition the old recipe was revived with great success at the Bodeguita del Medio Bar in Cuba. Right, now stop studying and get into action....!
