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!
Sweet + Salty Rim: Raw Blue Agave + Chile Lime Seasoning (I get both at Trader Joe’s)
– 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.

Um, saved! This looks so refreshing! I can't wait to try it out as the weather warms up here in Dallas!

I don't know if you know this, but in the Chinese/Vietnamese culture, the kumquat/orange tree you have signifies prosperity and good luck! Just thought y'all should know! 😉
