1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup mint leaves, plus mint sprigs for garnish

4 cups brewed black tea, cooled (use 2 tea bags)

2 cups grapefruit juice

Optional Liquor Additions:

4 ounces rum


  1. Combine the sugar, water and mint leaves in a small saucepan. Heat on the stove top over low heat until the sugar has dissolved and the mint has infused the syrup, about 10 minutes. Strain and cool.
  2. In a large pitcher add the tea, grapefruit juice and mint syrup. Serve chilled over ice and garnish each glass with a sprig of mint. Add the rum to the pitcher, if desired.
