Ingredients

For the mint simple syrup:

  • 3 to 5 pulled mint leaves
  • 32 Ounces water
  • 16 Ounces sugar

For the slushie:

  • 54 Ounces crushed ice
  • 3 Ounces grapefruit juice
  • 1 Ounce lime juice
  • 2 Ounces mint simple syrup
  • 1 bottle grapefruit shandy, preferably Traveler Grapefruit Shandy
  • Ruby red grapefruit wedge, to garnish

Directions

For the mint simple syrup:

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.

For the slushie:

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.

Grapefruit Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
