Ingredients
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1 habanero pepper, sliced in half
  • Sea salt, for glass rims
  • 3 cups freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice (from about 3 grapefruits)
  • 4 lime wedges, for garnish
  • 4 grapefruit wedges, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Pour the tequila in a mason jar or other container and add the habanero. Let steep for about 3 hours (you can leave the habanero in longer, but beware that the tequila will get spicier and spicier the longer it sits).

  2. Place sea salt on a s mall plate. Brush rims of glasses with water or simple syrup and roll to coat in sea salt. Fill glasses with ice.

  3. Divide grapefruit juice between glasses (using 3/4 cup for each). Pour 2 oz. habanero tequila into each glass. Stir. Garnish glasses with lime and grapefruit wedges if desired.
