FRESH CITRUS + GRAPEFRUIT COCKTAIL RECIPE
Food + Drink
Happy Monday, babes –
As I mentioned on @thelovelycottage last week, J and I are going to share some of our favorite Spring + Summer cocktail recipes with you over the next few months! There’s nothing better than coming home after a long day, shaking up a little cocktail, and sitting outside for sunset. This specific recipe (makes 1 cocktail, double for you + a friend) is really similar to a fresh margarita, but with a grapefruit twist!
– 1.5 ounces (1 jigger) of your favorite tequila
– 1/2 cup Italian Grapefruit Soda (from Trader Joes)
– Splash of Orange Juice with Pineapple
– Splash of San Pellegrino
*Note – you can’t shake carbonated sodas in a cocktail shaker. Shake the tequila and OJ over ice in the shaker, then add the grapefruit soda and San Pellegrino and stir.
Garnish with your favorite fruit – typically we would use a lime or a grapefruit, but it’s time to harvest the fruit on our new citrus tree so we used that! It’s a mix between a kumquat and an orange and they’re so good (and cute + little)!
Pretty + easy for an evening happy hour or even a mexican-food inspired brunch! We’ve also made this cocktail in a large pitcher before hosting that’s super easy to refill without having to make each cocktail individually. Trust us – it will not disappoint!
As always, drink responsibly and enjoy! Cheers, y’all!
Thanks so much for stopping by, X.
