Ingredients

For the cocktails:

12 fresh raspberries

4 thin slices jalapeno pepper

12 ounces tequila (preferably 100 percent blue agave tequila blanco)

12 ounces fresh ruby red grapefruit juice

3 ounces fresh lime juice

3 ounces agave syrup

10 ounces club soda or lemon-lime soda

For the grapefruit salt:

1/4 cup kosher salt

Zest of 1 grapefruit

Lime wedges, for the glasses

Directions

  1. Make the cocktails: In a glass pitcher, muddle the raspberries and jalapeno, then fill halfway with ice. Add the tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice and agave. Take a second pitcher (the same size) and pour one into the other repeatedly to mix the drink together. Top it off with club soda or lemon-lime soda.
  2. Make the grapefruit salt: Crush the salt and grapefruit zest together with a mortar and pestle, then spread on a plate. Run a lime wedge around the rim of each glass, then dip the glasses in the grapefruit salt. Fill with the cocktails.
