Larry Trask / Tuesday, May 13, 2014 @ 8:23 a.m. / Cocktail

It's feeling pretty summery these days and nothing tastes like summer more than tequila. Tonight's cocktail, a variation on the Hemingway Daiquiri, adds the lively flavor of fresh grapefruit and lime for a perfect afternoon cooler. Omit the simple syrup if you prefer a drink on the tarter side.


  • ice
  • 2 ounces silver tequila (100% agave)
  • 1/2 ounce Campari
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • garnish: grapefruit twist

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, then add tequila, Campari, lime juice, grapefruit juice, and simple syrup. Shake well and strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with grapefruit twist.
