  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) 100% grapefruit juice*
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 sprig fresh mint
  • 1 to 3 slices fresh jalapeño
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) ginger beer*


  1. Muddle the lime and jalapeño. Add the grapefruit juice, lime juice, mint and jalapeño slices to a cocktail shaker.*  Use a muddler or a wooden spoon to gently muddle the mint and jalapeño into the juices.
  2. Combine. Add the ice to a copper mug or large cocktail glass.  Strain the grapefruit juice mixture over the ice.  Top with the ginger beer and briefly stir to combine.
  3. Garnish and serve. Garnish the drink with an extra citrus slice, jalapeño, and/or a sprig of fresh mint and enjoy! Cheers!


Grapefruit juice and ginger beer: As mentioned above, I recommend using 100% pure grapefruit juice and a minimally-sweet brand of ginger beer to keep this cocktail nice and tart and not overly sweet.

Cocktail shaker alternative: If you don’t own a cocktail shaker, feel free to just use a mason jar or a glass to muddle the juices, then strain into your serving glass.
