I actually prefer the grapefruit soda (Jarritos) version, as long as lime juice is added as well. The grapefruit juice isn't sweet enough, and gets bitter fast.

Mojitos are hard to beat though, even if they're a bit cliched.

Muddle some mint in the bottom of a collins glass (or highball glass, I suppose). Add 2 oz light rum, about 1 oz simple syrup, and 1 oz lime juice. Stir it together well, add ice, and fill up the rest of the way (or as much as you like) with seltzer/club soda, and give it another gentle stir.

If you want it to be gorgeous looking (doesn't affect the taste), strain out the mint pieces before adding the ice, leaving the mint-infused syrup/rum/lime juice in the glass, and continue as before. Garnish with a mint spring.
