  • sparkling sugar or regular granulated sugar for rimming the glasses
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Juice of 1 grapefruit
  • 1/4 cup honey or agave nectar or simple syrup (or adjust to taste)
  • 4 shots tequila
  • 3 cups Lemon-lime seltzer water (or 2 cans)
  • 3 cups Grapefruit seltzer water (or 2 cans)


  • Place sugar on a plate. Run a wet finger along the rim of the glasses or rub with a lime wedge, then turn them upside down on the plate and twist them into the sugar, coating them. Set aside until ready to use.
  • If making four individual drinks, in a measuring cup or cocktail shaker, combine lime juice, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, honey and tequila. Shake or stir well until fully combined, then divide between the glasses. Fill the glasses with ice, then top with lemon-lime and grapefruit seltzer (about 3/4 cup or a half a can of each type per glass).
  • If making in a pitcher, combine lime juice, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, honey and tequila in the pitcher. Stir until fully combined, then top with lemon-lime and grapefruit seltzer. Serve in sugar-rimmed glasses over ice.
