This tequila-based cocktail is very popular in Mexico, especially in the beach bars. It can be found throughout Mexico in pre-mixed cans or it can be made up by hand. It is built using a tequila base with a grapefruit flavoured soda drink and either simply a lime wedge or a splash of lime juice and a lime wedge. The drink sometimes can be made with fresh grapefruit juice and club soda.
