Sweet, sour, and bubbly, this Skinny Grapefruit Mojito is bound to win your heart!
There is nothing like a good mojito to wind down after a long day. I absolutely love the muddled mint and sweet flavor of mojitos. And rum. Just about nothing beats a good rum.
What makes this recipe one of my favorite mojitos though is that instead of using club soda it uses a good bubbly champagne to round out its flavor.
It’s seriously perfection. When making this recipe, any type of grapefruit will work. I personally prefer using red grapefruits. Also, don’t be shy with the mint. Seriously. If you think you have added enough, add in an extra pinch for safe measure.
