Hey hey! This is one amazing little libation of love! I have been suffering with a stupid winter cold that has gone from a head cold to a chest cold and nothing will 'cut the crud' and make me stop coughing. This did the trick! The citrus of the grapefruit was the burst of liquid vitamin C I needed and the tequila broke through the coughing fits and settled my chest! I CAN BREATHE! and not only that... I can taste! This is so YUMMY! I used a Rio Red Texas Grapefruit that I juiced in my juicer and measured out the prescribed ounce. Mixed with some Herradura Reposado Tequila that I have been squirreling away in the back of the liquor cabinet! To get the same pretty red color I had to add more than a healthy splash of grenadine. I had another and I think I like this with less grenadine because it is more tart and tangy. Equally good both ways! Leslie my dear gf, you are a true dearheart for posting this amazing recipe! Thank you!

I made this drink as written. It was a little too strong for me. I added a little bit more of the grapefruit to it. I used bottled juice Fresh grapefruit is a little too pricey. for me. It's a good drink if you like them strong. Thank you for sharing your recipe. This made for ZWT 4 South and Central America. and the Cafe ZMAkk Gypsies.

We really enjoyed this on a hot Aussie Sunday afternoon. For me I added a bit more pink grapefruit juice but Dave liked it just how it was, he is a tequila drinker though. I would like to try this again soon with sparkling grapefruit juice. Thank you Leslie, we were thinking of you while we drank this :)

Delightful! I had to reduce the tequila to 1 oz and increase the grapefruit juice to 1 1/2 oz to really enjoy it.

It's official. Tequila and freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice is my favorite drink concoction from now on, especially that the fruit is in season at the moment. Yum! Thank you.

WHEW! This is one strong cocktail LOL. I used the amazing pink grapefruit juice from Trader Joes and my favorite Silver Patron (which was chilling in my freezer). The grenadine makes it a very pretty color. I did have to add extra grapefruit juice, doubled the recipe and served it over ice. Thanks! Made for ZWT8 for Team Jammin Jazzberries for Mexico.

I liked the taste of the pink grapefruit juice with the tequila. I used Tropicana Grapefruit juice. Next time, I'll cut a little bit on the tequila and add a little bit more of juice :) Made for ZWT 3

This was very good. I also increased the juice and decreased the tequila and added a splash of pink lemonade for my DD who wanted hers just a touch sweeter. And it's such a pretty drink! Reviewed for ZWT3.

We're not big tequila drinks so were pleasantly surprised at how nice this was. We love pink grapefruit juice, and while this is nice, I still prefer it paired with vodka. Thanks for a nice change of pace though!
