Grapefruit Mojito

Hiya.  How’s the weekend been?  Hot?

Yep.  Hot.

So I thought of something yesterday.  A pretty smart something, I think, in all this heat.

I didn’t get to execute it until today, but I’m pretty pleased.

So the SodaStream and I meet again….here’s what I did:

bubbling water

Bubbles.

DT bought a bunch of mint from the farmer’s market Thursday….have I mentioned how mine is kind of dead?

SS grapefruit

Ruby red!

This sparkling grapefruit juice is sooooo thirst-quenching on a hot summer day.  I had a hunch that mixing it with mint Mojita-style would make it extra delightful.

Muddle muddle muddle!

I didn’t have to add any extra sugar or sweetening – the sparkling grapefruit was just enough sweet-tart.

Hope you’re staying cool, cats!  🙂
