Shake with ice, and strain into an ice filled rocks glass. Garnish with a lime or grapefruit wedge.


The original recipe called for .25 oz St. Germain and .25 ounce Simple Syrup. After a few tries, I doubled the St Germain and omitted the Simple Syrup entirely, as I felt the floral taste of the elderflower liqueur was too nuanced, and needed to be more forward.

  • Great tequila grapefruit drink. Kinda as you’d expect, if you’d expect this to be good. Refreshing.
  • margarita-ish, mild elderflower — ★★★★
  • Quite sour but very tasty
  • Nice and refreshing, get the bitterness from the grapefruit. Can't really taste the elderflower though
  • Would go well with a salt rim and a little spice. Maybe jalapeño — ★★★★★
  • Great tequila drink.
