    Wonderful drink. I frequently top a cocktail like this off with club soda or tonic water to make it even more refreshing on a very, very, very hot summer day.

    Tart, refreshing and pretty to look at! The rum/ grapefruit juice is a little unusual but tasty. Made for PAC Spring 2012

    I made these the other night on my DH's Birthday. I used to drink rum and grapefruit juice at times in college and loved the added flavor/color of the cranberry juice!!! Thanks for sharing another great drink recipe!! Made for Gimme 5 Tag Game.

    I made this as a single drink while testing rum drinks for a party. We loved the bite from the grapefruit juice (I used ruby red) and the complex flavor of the dark rum. I made it in larger quantities in a pitcher for the party by sustituting "ounces" with "cups".

    Delightful summer drink: it is refreshing, not sweet, with a hint of rum, but don't let anyone think he or she can keep drinking these from a pitcher without some wicked side effects. I'd say this is a perfect drink to watch the sun set. Thanks for sharing this drink recipe, Boomette. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag.
