Lately, I've been on a grapefruit kick.
I've also been on an alcohol kick, but there's nothing lately about that.
One of my favorite local cocktails is Mexican Sugar's grapefruit paloma.
Isn't it the cutest?
In an effort to not spend $10 on a cocktail, and also in an effort to use up everything in our pantry before we move in a few weeks, I decided to make my own grapefruit paloma.
Mexican Sugar's version is made using grapefruit juice, tequila, lime, agave, and a Mexican squirt.
I'm fresh out of Mexican squirts, but I did have a grapefruit, lime, agave, and tequila on hand.
Just to spice things up a bit, I felt the need to add coconut LaCroix.
Don't ask questions.
The finished product paled in comparison to the original, but I loved it nonetheless.
Here's how you can make your own:
1/2 cup fresh squeezed grapefruit juice (about 1/2 a grapefruit)
1/2 cup coconut LaCroix (I'm not opposed to going hardcore and trying grapefruit LaCroix next time)
1 tablespoon of lime juice
1 shot of tequila
Agave to taste
Rosemary on top because it looked stupid without it.
