They may look real, but these grapefruit mojitos are mocktails. The refreshing blend of citrus and mint is perfect for a warm summer afternoon.

Makes two drinks.

1/4 ruby or pink grapefruit, cut into small chunks and seeds removed
2 tbs. agave syrup or honey
12 fresh mint leaves, roughly torn
1/2 cup pink grapefruit soda or flavored mineral water, plus more as needed
mint sprigs, for garnish

Directions

Put the grapefruit pieces, agave and mint in a cocktail shaker. Using a muddler, smash the fruit until the juice is released.
