Happy weekend!! It went by too fast since I had to work on Saturday….but I can still enjoy what’s left, and so can you with this post 😉 Here’s my latest mix….I think it is elegantly delectable, and the surprising part is it’s TEQUILA!!

A shout out to my tequila-lovers, though it seems there are far and few. But this drink might change your mind, even if you’re not too fond of the stuff!

Here’s what you need:

3 shots tequila (3oz-this drink is martini-style so you should probably break out the good stuff!)

2 shots (2 oz) fresh grapefruit juice

2 shots (2oz) cranberry juice

1 shot (1oz) simple syrup

Step 1: Start by juicing! Of course you can buy grapefruit juice but where’s the fun in that? Plus this fresh juice has a powerfully pink color which gives the drink it’s girliness 🙂

I used my hand juicer and ended up with 8 oz of juice from ONE grapefruit….that’s a lot of juice for your money. I will admit this was a bit of work, but by the end of the process I earned my new nickname “Jerika-o-lay The Juicer” 😉

Step 2: Next up, the garnish! This drink is fun because of grapefruit skewer served over the top. Slice the grapefruit length wise (so you can see the sections) and skewer a few pieces on a bamboo skewer or even a straw.

Step 3: Mix up cranbery, grapefruit juice, simple syrup, and TEQUILA and shake it until your hands are frozen.

A word about the tequila….this is the “good stuff” from Mexico! Hence the worm (aka gusano). Apparently the worm thing is a gimmick, by which people think it is an indication of premium liquor when in fact it was previously and indicator of lower product and infestation of the larvae from the agave plant. Now the worms are put in to attract buyers…meh works for me, I think it make it more authentic 🙂 Fun fact of the day!

I was VERY disappointed to discover I couldn’t get the worm out of the bottle to shoot it like a badass. Sad!

Step 4: Pour into a chilled, sugar-rimmed glass, and ENJOY 🙂

OMG this drink was fantabulous! I had 2 before dinner and we continued to sip them after the return from our Friday date night! And it’s so pretty! Definately a new favorite for Mrs. Cummings!! Enjoy!

    Hello! Thankyou for the post on my blog, it’s very new i’m suprised you found it so fast!

    Tequila and grapefruit are a fantastic match, that drink looks tasty.

    In Mexico they drink a lot of Palomas (Dove in Spanish) If you can get hold of Ting or another grapefruit soda, try 2oz of tequila with grapefruit soda over ice, some fresh lime and a salt rim if you’re feeling fancy.

    I’ll try and cover it soon on my blog (got quite a queue of drink requests building up!)

    Cheers, Liam 🙂
