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!
