I don't make a lot of cocktails on Vegetarianized.com (this is also a great drink without alcohol too!), but a version of this refreshing drink recently caught my attention at one of my favorite, local restaurants. I brought it in-season by replacing the usually lime juice of a mint julep with ruby red grapefruit juice, and added a spicy ginger component using both ginger beer and a candied ginger garnish. You can make your own ginger beer (it's super easy!) using my recipe for one of my other favorite drinks, Dark 'N Stormy. One drink isn't without any nutritional merit: it's "Low In" fat, saturated fat, sodium and cholesterol and "High In" vitamin C.

A professional essay writer can tackle any academic subject and can provide you with a high-quality paper in a timely manner. Their experience and expertise in writing will help you boost your grades. Choosing the right writer for your assignment can make all the difference between getting a passing grade and failing your classes. With the right writer, you can enjoy a high-quality essay while avoiding countless hours of stress. The service's writers are available 24/7, so you can always count on a timely delivery of your paper.
You can also opt for a service that can do my paper for me cheaply, but only if you choose one that's reliable. Cheap writing services are unreliable and may not complete your project on time. Therefore, you must choose a reputable service that will do it on time and meets your needs. You may not want to spend too much on a cheap service that will only end up costing you more money in the long run.
If you're worried about plagiarism, consider hiring a research paper writer. You can contact them directly and get a finished paper within minutes. And the best part is, it's legal! As long as you choose a reputable writing company, you'll be safe. They never break the law and deliver non-plagiarized content. Just be sure to check their reputation and sample work before you choose one. Finally, choose a writing company with transparent policies and testimonials from previous clients.
Moreover, you need to ensure that the paper writer you're hiring is reputable and can deliver the type of work you need. There are many freelance writers online that will do the job for you, so you need to be sure that the writer you hire can deliver a quality paper. However, you should also check the online reviews of the company you're choosing before ordering from them. You should order research papers only when you're certain that the service you're choosing will meet your expectations.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup plus 2/3 cup sugar
  • 5 sprigs fresh mint, divided
  • 3-4 oz piece fresh ginger, the wider the better
  • 1 large grapefruit, juiced
  • 3 oz bourbon, optional
  • 4 oz ginger beer
  • crushed ice

Preparation

  1. In a small pot, heat 1 cup of water with 3/4 cup of sugar over medium heat until dissolved. Remove from the heat and add 3 mint sprigs. Let steep 30 minutes, or longer if you have time.
  2. Meanwhile, peel and slice the ginger into 1/4" coins and add to 2 cups of water in a small pot. Heat over medium heat, cover and cook 30 minutes.
  3. Pull the ginger out and into a colander to drain. Place the water back on the heat and add the remaining sugar. Stir until dissolved and then reduce 20 minutes.
  4. Add the ginger coins to the syrup and boil, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is almost completely evaporated, about 20-30 minutes more. Remove the coins to a cooling rack.
  5. Add the grapefruit juice, bourbon (if using), ginger beer and 3 oz mint syrup to a large glass filled with crushed ice. Mix well and then distribute among the glasses. Garnish with a candied ginger coin and mint sprig stuck with a toothpick.
