Prep Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
- 1 12- oz IPA with grapefruit notes more if needed
- 12 oz grapefruit soda more if needed
- fresh grapefruit slices for garnish
- fresh mint for garnish
Make sure the IPA and the grapefruit soda are nicely chilled.
Place a slice of grapefruit in each tall glass, preferably wedging it to follow the curvature of the glass bottom to prevent it from floating to the top.
First pour the IPA. Fill 1/2 to 3/4 of the glass with IPA, depending on your preference for sweetness (grapefruit sodas tend to be very sweet).
Fill the rest of each glass with grapefruit soda.
Garnish with fresh mint and drop an ice cube or two for sparkle.
