Grapefruit Salt:

1/4 cup kosher salt

Zest of 1 grapefruit


12 fresh raspberries

4 slices fresh jalapeno

3 ounces agave syrup

3 ounces fresh lime juice

12 ounces fresh ruby red grapefruit juice

12 ounces tequila blanco 100-percent blue agave

Ice cubes

10 ounces club soda or lemon lime soda

Grapefruit wedges, for garnish, optional


  1. For the salt: Crush the salt and grapefruit zest together in a mortar and pestle. Rim glasses with the grapefruit salt to serve the cocktails in.
  2. For the cocktail: In a glass pitcher, muddle the raspberries, jalapeno slices, agave syrup and lime juice together. Add the grapefruit juice and tequila. Take a second pitcher of the same size and fill it three-fourths of the way with ice. Pour the drink into the pitcher with ice, then back into the first pitcher, repeating back and forth to mix together. Pour into the rimmed glasses, top off with club soda, garnish with grapefruit wedges if desired and serve.
