Happy Monday, babes - 

As I mentioned on @thelovelycottage last week, J and I are going to share some of our favorite Spring + Summer cocktail recipes with you over the next few months!  There's nothing better than coming home after a long day, shaking up a little cocktail, and sitting outside for sunset.  This specific recipe (makes 1 cocktail, double for you + a friend) is really similar to a fresh margarita, but with a grapefruit twist!

Sweet + Salty Rim: Raw Blue Agave + Chile Lime Seasoning (I get both at Trader Joe's)

- 1.5 ounces (1 jigger) of your favorite tequila
- 1/2 cup Italian Grapefruit Soda (from Trader Joes)
- Splash of Orange Juice with Pineapple
- Splash of San Pellegrino

*Note - you can't shake carbonated sodas in a cocktail shaker.  Shake the tequila and OJ over ice in the shaker, then add the grapefruit soda and San Pellegrino and stir.

Garnish with your favorite fruit - typically we would use a lime or a grapefruit, but it's time to harvest the fruit on our new citrus tree so we used that!  It's a mix between a kumquat and an orange and they're so good (and cute + little)!

Pretty + easy for an evening happy hour or even a mexican-food inspired brunch!  We've also made this cocktail in a large pitcher before hosting that's super easy to refill without having to make each cocktail individually.  Trust us - it will not disappoint!

As always, drink responsibly and enjoy!  Cheers, y'all!

Thanks so much for stopping by, X.


  1. This is the most beautiful cocktail ever! Love it and keep them coming!

  2. Um, saved! This looks so refreshing! I can't wait to try it out as the weather warms up here in Dallas!

    I don't know if you know this, but in the Chinese/Vietnamese culture, the kumquat/orange tree you have signifies prosperity and good luck! Just thought y'all should know! ;)
