“This is my favorite flavor next to the original lime. Make on the rocks or frozen. The mix of coarse salt and sugar on the rim is the best.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 2 ounces orange liqueur
  • 2 ounces fresh-squeezed lime juice, about 2 limes
  • 6 ounces fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice, pink grapefruit is pretty

  • 2 tablespoons coarse salt
  • 2 teaspoons coarse sugar crystals
  • grapefruit, wedges for garnish
