It is popular to add 1 ounce of lime juice and 1/2 ounce each of lime juice and simple syrup (no bitters) to 2 ounces of rum. In another, they use more lime juice, and mix 1 1/2 ounces rum with 1 1/2 ounces lime juice, plus 1 ounce grapefruit juice and 3 teaspoons of powdered sugar.
It is common for lighter (or white) rums to be included in Nevada cocktails, although some people prefer other types. If you prefer to have this cocktail with rum, try a bold Navy rum, golden, aged, or spiced rum. As far as grapefruit juice goes, try white, pink, or ruby red grapefruit juice. Fresh citrus juice will definitely make this drink better. Normally, grapefruits have large amounts of juice (5 or 6 ounces), which is enough to make a few drinks with one. To make it simple, you can squeeze the juice from lime into the shaker and shake. If you prefer to use powdered sugar in this recipe, you can also use 1/2 ounce of simple syrup. If you do not care about granulated sugar diluting, use 1/2 ounce of superfine sugar. While aromatic bitters (such as Angostura) are the most common, the bitters can be interpreted in different ways. This classic cocktail is also fantastic served on rocks atop ice in a classic old-fashioned glass. You can also use one of the newer flavors, such as grapefruit, lemon, or peach.
