For National Refreshment Day, presented by Traveler Beer Company, on July 28, El Original TX-MX is launching two special, off–the-menu “shush” (shandy+slushie) cocktails. Both cocktails will be available through Labor Day.
Makes 32 ounces
Combine mint leaves with two parts water and one part sugar.
Bring to a boil and then let it cool to room temperature.
Break down crushed ice as much as possible so that the carbonation of the shandy won’t dilute the slushie.
Combine ice, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and mint simple syrup. Blend until smooth.
While blending, add shandy to the mixture.
Garnish with a ruby red grapefruit wedge.
