  • 6 oz tequila .....white or gold are both fine.
  • 3 oz triple sec
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 2 oz fresh grapefruit juice
  • 6 mint leaves .....4 mint leaves for muddling plus a few more for garnish


  • Muddle mint leaves with lime juice in shaker.
  • Add grapefruit juice, tequila, triple sec, and 1 cup of ice to shaker.
  • Salt rims of glasses if desired
  • Shake, strain, and pour over fresh ice.
  • Garnish with 1-2 mint leaves per drink.


This recipe makes 2 drinks.
If you absolutely cannot get your hands on fresh grapefruits, you can use bottled.  I'd recommend using either Simply Grapefruit, or Trader Joe's Villa Italia grapefruit soda.  
Alternatively, you can make this drink non-alcoholic by simply eliminating the tequila and triple sec and replacing it with some lime or grapefruit seltzer.
