What you’ll need…
- kosher salt
- grapefruit wedge
- 4 oz Straub’s fresh grapefruit juice
- 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
- 1 tsp sugar
- 4 oz tequila (preferably reposado tequila)
- 4 oz club soda
Pour some kosher salt onto a plate. Rub the rim of a highball glass with a grapefruit wedge and dip the rim of the glass in salt. Combine 4 oz. fresh grapefruit juice, 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, and 1 teaspoon sugar in the glass. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in 4 oz tequila, add ice, and top off with 4 oz. club soda. Garnish with a grapefruit wedge.
*The recipe traditionally calls for grapefruit soda instead of the juice mixture. You could also try this recipe by replacing the juice, sugar and club soda with GuS’ Pink Grapefruit Soda.
