Looking for a way to make a refreshing tequila drink that’s not as high octane as a margarita (well, it is, but there’s more liquid to dilute the alcohol), we came up with this summer sipper.
2 oz tequila
1 oz triple sec
Juice of 1/2 lime
Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
Splash of club soda
Lime wedge for garnish
Shake tequila, triple sec and lime juice in a shaker with ice. Strain and pour over ice into a rocks glass. Fill with grapefruit juice and top with a splash of club soda. Stir gently and garnish with lime. (Note: This is not a sweet drink. If you want it sweet, add simple syrup to taste.)
El Jimador Habañero Lime Margarita
1 1/2 oz El Jimador Reposado
1/2 oz lime juice
3 oz sour mix
3 dashes Tabasco®
In a shaker filled with ice, add ingredients and shake to mix. Pour into margarita glass rimmed with salt (optional). Garnish with a lime wedge.
