A refreshing cocktail blending tangy grapefruit, smooth bourbon, and mint for a perfectly balanced drink.


  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 4 oz fresh grapefruit segments
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • A few fresh mint leaves


  • Muddle grapefruit and mint in the shaker.
  • Add bourbon, simple syrup, and lemon juice, then shake with ice.
  • Strain into an ice-filled glass. Optionally top with club soda.
  • Garnish with a grapefruit slice or mint.


With each sip, you’ll get the tangy and slightly bitter taste of grapefruit, which perfectly complements the smooth, oaky flavors of the bourbon. The lemon adds a nice citrusy kick, while the mint refreshes your palate, making each sip as enjoyable as the first.
