  • Category: Drinks
  • Cuisine: Mexican


  • 1 thin wedge grapefruit
  • coarse salt (if you have smoked salt, adding a bit to your plain salt is a nice touch)
  • 3/4 ounce mescal (or more tequila if you’re not into mescal or can’t find it)
  • 1 ounce tequila blanco
  • 2 ounces 1/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice (or more if you’d like it fruiter)
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • ice
  • club soda


  1. Run the grapefruit wedge around the rim of a high ball glass. Dip in salt.
  2. In the glass, combine the mescal, tequila, grapefruit juice and lime juice. Stir well. 
  3. Add ice to fill the glass 3/4 of the way, and then top off with club soda. Garnish with the grapefruit wedge.
