There's nothing like spending a warm night under the setting sun with a refreshing beverage in hand. For your next outdoor shindig, try whipping up a few of Lauren Kelp's Grapefruit Mint Mojitos for a delightful libation that's sure to please! If this recipe looks familiar, you may have seen it in our summer lookbook, An Afternoon Alfresco! Lauren was one of the food bloggers who contributed their favorite summer recipe that we later recreated just for our shoot. You can check out the lookbook here, and learn more about Lauren in her Ruchette of the Month interview!
