Martha released her favorite 31 specialty cocktails yesterday via her online wedding site and of course I immediately read every single recipe. Cocktails are such an important part of wedding and event celebrations and selecting the right signature cocktail is so important to the overall theme of your big day. It might sound surprising, but I have had status calls with brides and grooms to talk about one thing, the SIGNATURE COCKTAIL. So, when Martha puts together a list of her favs, you know they are not only delicious, but are gorgeous. If you know me, I love anything that is delicious wrapped up in beautiful.
Since I'm throwing a pink themed bridal shower for one of my best college girlfriends next month, I've been on the search for a refreshing pretty pink cocktail that packs a punch. Thanks to Martha, I have found it - a Grapefruit-Mint Mojito. YUM. Give a whirl, I have included the recipe below.
To view Martha's top 31 favorite signature cocktails, go here. Cheers and enjoy!
|Grapefruit Mint Mojito|
A simple mint syrup takes the place of crushed leaves in this grapefruit-mint mojito. Be sure to add fresh sprigs on top for a dash of color and heady aroma. Tall, slender glasses and long stirring sticks impart a modern elegance.
INGREDIENTS (makes 4 servings):
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup packed fresh mint leaves, plus sprigs for garnish
1 ruby-red grapefruit
3/4 cup white rum
