Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • Two 2-inch pieces fresh ginger 
  • 2 to 3 strips red grapefruit zest, pith removed 
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, plus 2 sprigs for garnish 
  • 1 ruby red grapefruit, segmented 
  • 1 lime, chopped 
  • 1/4 cup best-quality white rum, very cold 
  • 1 split (quarter-bottle) sparkling rose wine, very cold 

Directions

Combine the sugar, 1 cup water, ginger and grapefruit zest in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and add most of the mint leaves. Let cool to room temperature, then chill for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours.

Strain the simple syrup into a small bowl and discard the solids. Divide the grapefruit segments, lime pieces and the remaining mint leaves between two tall glasses. Add a few tablespoons of simple syrup to each and muddle. Fill the glasses with ice cubes; stir 2 tablespoons of the rum into each and fill with sparkling wine. Stir, garnish with mint sprigs and serve.
