This is my ruby red grapefruit vodka ginger mojito cocktail recipe! Very yummy and super easy!
I had this vodka ginger mojito at our cousin’s house. She made it because she’d enjoyed something similar at a function. I’m always adventurous when it comes to food and cocktails because not only do I like most things but I don’t mind trying something and not liking it.
I can truly say there are only a few things I absolutely don’t like and won’t eat.
- Banana bread – But you already know that from my About Me page!
- Hot dogs – Blech!
- Baked beans – I dislike sweet beans, but all other beans are okay in my book.
- Brussel sprouts – Did you know there is a chemical in them that some people hate? I’m one of those peeps.
That’s pretty much it. Some other foods I’m ambivalent about, which means I don’t actively seek out those edibles, but I would eat them if put in front of me.
I speak about one such ingredient in this post.
And the ingredient is…………
I won’t go into it again but when our cousin Pat said she was going to make this cocktail and told me what was in it, I thought, “oh-oh.”
But, as I said, I’m adventurous so I agreed to drink it. I’m such a good guest. Wouldn’t you agree?
As you can already guess, this is the cocktail Pat served.
All I can say is: I’m glad that I’m adventurous! It was so delicious that I ended up having two, which makes me a great guest.
On to the recipe.
The ingredients for the ruby red grapefruit vodka ginger mojito cocktail and the mixing
I get out the ruby red grapefruit vodka. Years ago this vodka was my first foray into flavored vodka. I have lovely memories of it and am quite fond of it.
I also get out the ginger infused simple syrup, some mint, lime and club soda.
Out comes the shaker and the muddler. I add 6 mint leaves to the shaker. Next, I squeeze the lime and measure out 1 ounce of that precious juice. I also measure 1 1/2 ounces of ginger infused simple syrup.
(You can use up to 2 ounces of the simple syrup. It really depends on whether you like a sweeter ginger mojito.)
I pour them into the shaker, take my muddler and use it to squish the mint until it is nice and fragrant.
I grab my highball glass and fill it with ice.
Ruby Red is my friend
Time to measure out 2 ounces of ruby red vodka.
I pour it into the shaker, cap it and shake it at least 10 times.
Here’s a photo of the shaker before I pour the ginger mojito over the ice.
There is a little space at the top of the glass for the club soda.
I uncap the club soda and fill up the glass.
One more photo and I’ll be able to sample the cocktail!
It’s time to drink!
And so I do.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe as much as Christopher and I enjoyed drinking it.
