  • 2 ounces silver tequila
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 ounces grapefruit juice
  • 3 ounces sparkling grapefruit juice see note


  • Combine all the ingredients and strain into a glass full of crushed ice.


I used La Croix's sparkling pamplemousse sparkling water for a great no calorie grapefruit flavor. You could definitely replace this with Squirt or Diet Squirt, which is a grapefruit soda, for a slightly sweeter drink.
