We go both ways on this one, depending on what we have on hand

2 oz Blanco tequila
2 oz Pink Grapefruit Juice
½ oz Lime Juice
½ oz Agave Nectar
1½ oz Club soda


2 oz Blanco tequila
3½ oz Pink Grapefruit Juice
½ oz Lime Juice

Fresh squeezed juice, club soda, and a fairly inexpensive anejo make a wonderfully light and refreshing cocktail. A few drops of campari for color and a bit more sweetness.

Highballs with soft drinks, huh? Personally I'd consider this a craft cocktail only with fresh juice, seltzer, and maybe some lime+simple for sweet/sour complexity.

Now San Pelligrino Sanbitter or Chinotto is a different story. I wonder if there is a grapefruit equivalent of Aranciata?

There is! San Pellegrino pompelmo.

KC always assumes fresh juice - just utilize the garnish ;) I wanted a minimalist version of this drink. The notes include many variants, including the additions of lime, grapefruit juice + club soda, etc...
