Why I Love This Recipe

Ernest Hemingway would be impressed by this smooth rum creation with a citrusy kick.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 fresh lime
3 slices canned grapefruit in light syrup (from a 15-ounce can)*
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) syrup from canned grapefruit
1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) premium light rum
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) premium Triple Sec
Lime wheel slice, for garnish

Martini shaker or pint glass
Shaking tin
Muddler or blunt utensil (like a small rolling pin)


Squeeze fresh juice from lime and pour into martini shaker. Insert 3 slices grapefruit into martini shaker, and muddle with lime juice. Add syrup from canned grapefruit into martini shaker. Add rum and Triple Sec. Fill martini shaker with ice and shake vigorously 10 times. Strain into chilled martini glass being sure to minimize pulp. Garnish with lime wheel.

Tip: Try substituting white cranberry juice in place of alcohol for a non-alcoholic treat for the kids to enjoy.

Serving glass: 10-ounce martini glass (chilled)

Servings: 1
