Here's a spicy beverage that places grapefruit in the spotlight. Along with honey, lime juice, jalapeno slices and a chili rim, this drink is a citrus sensation with a bit of a flavor kick.


Select ingredients:


  1. On a paper plate, place the salt and chili powder and mix well.
  2. Dampen the lip of a glass with lime juice or grapefruit juice and then dip in the salt/chili powder mixture. (This will coat the rim.) Repeat with a second glass.
  3. Place the tequila in a cup and add 6 jalapeno slices. Let them soak for 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the jalapenos and set aside.
  5. In a mason jar, combine the tequila, the grapefruit juice, the lime juice, and the honey. Add 3 jalapeno slices. Place the lid on the jar and shake well. Open the jar and fill with ice. Continue to shake.
  6. Pour the mixture into each glass. Serve with lime and grapefruit wedges for garnish, or a slice or two of jalapeno pepper.
