- Originating in the craft cocktail movement, this drink takes inspiration from Mexico's love for tequila and the country's abundant citrus.
- The addition of hibiscus, known as 'Jamaica' in Mexico, brings a floral depth that complements the grapefruit's tanginess.
- It's a popular choice for summer gatherings or as a refreshing aperitif.
This cocktail offers a delightful dance of flavors. The grapefruit provides a zesty, slightly bitter citrus punch, while the hibiscus infuses a subtle floral sweetness. The tequila grounds the drink with its earthy robustness, and the Tajin rim adds a spicy, tangy kick.
