Tequila is one of my favorite alcohols. I think when people hear tequila they only think of margaritas. Which I can see why they would think that. Afterall, margartitias are an amazingly popular drink with its main ingredient being tequila.
But, tequila does have other fantastic drinks to offer! This tequila grapefruit spritz packs the sweet taste of grapefruit with the agava taste of tequila with just a touch of carbination. The flavors meld together to create a refreshing and very easy to craft cocktail!
One of the things I love about this particular drink is that there is no need for a cocktail shaker. No extra barware to clean. Just mix it right in the glass and responsibly enjoy its sweet taste. Most of the ingredients are also common ingredients in most bars meaning less thinking ahead to gather them from the store, and more enjoying the flavors!
Check out this tequila grapefruit spritz recipe for a refreshingly simple and yet sweet cocktail for those low key nights in.
