Here is a quick and easy drink recipe slightly adapted from Bon Appetit. Opting for a sweeter drink, I swapped out the salt rimmed glass with a sugar rimmed glass, but please feel free to choose salt or sugar!

I really enjoyed this drink and have made it several time since first trying it. Worrying that the tequila might be a little too strong, I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted it. The blend of grapefruit, lime, and sugar blended perfectly with the tequila, making for a very refreshing drink!
