Cocktail Friday – Gathering Events Mint Grapefruit Collins

Gathering Events

The simple combination of fresh ingredients makes this the perfect cocktail for warmer nights. Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice over lime, mint, white rum and a dash of soda – you can’t get more refreshing than that. Traditionally a taller style Collins glass is used for white spirits cocktails such as this and best part is no shaker necessary for this one, simply stir together, serve over ice and your ready to go!

  • 60ml Bacardi Rum
  • 50 ml Grapefruit Juice

  • Muddle the lime quarters in a tall glass
