This tonic is refreshing, hydrating and naturally sweet. I love serving it in a pitcher on a summer day or whipping one up for a party of one.

Serves 1

  • 3/4 cup sparkling water

  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed red grapefruit juice

  • 1/4 cup lime juice

  • 1-2 slices seeded jalapeno

  • 1 shot vodka or tequila (optional)

In a shaker, add grapefruit juice, lime juice, jalapeno (and vodka or tequila shot if using) and some crushed ice. Shake shake shake. In a tall glass, top some ice cubes with the sparkling water and top with grapefruit mixture.
