Champagne Grapefruit Mojito
1 tablespoon agave nectar
12 mint leaves
juice of one lime, about 2 tablespoons
3 ounces good rum
juice of one grapefruit
1 cup ice, broken into large cubes
about ⅓ cup champagne, club soda or tonic can be substituted
I like to juice the lime and grapefruit, then cut them into wedges and muddle.
To a shaker add grapefruit juice and wedges, mint, agave, ice, lime juice and lime wedges.
Muddle crushing to release flavors.
Add rum and shake. (do not add carbonated beverage)
Spoon out the grapefruit and lime wedges.
Fill 8 to 10 ounce glasses with ice and pour half full with grapefruit/mint mixture. Finish filling glass with champagne and stir to combine.
Garnish with grapefruit wedge and mint stem
