“Class” Notes:

This cocktail is one of my favorites and it is so easy and quick to make too! I personally enjoy making this in larger batches as well, and often pre-juice several grapefruits and place the juice in a jar until needed. This is great for entertaining too.

In a cocktail shaker, simply combine the grapefruit juice, lime juice, and the mezcal. Mezcal tequila is very smoky, and definitely has a unique, almost savory flavor. Shake these three ingredients over ice until chilled and strain into a glass. Top off with a grapefruit club soda to keep it lower in carbs!
