This grapefruit infused tequila is delicious in place of traditional silver tequila in any margarita or Paloma cocktail.


Units Scale
  • 2 - 4 inch pieces of grapefruit rind
  • 2 cups silver tequila
  • A pint mason jar and lid


Thoroughly wash your grapefruit.

Using a vegetable peeler, remove the rind from the grapefruit. Try not to get the white pith underneath the rind. Set aside.

Place grapefruit peels in a pint mason jar.

Add tequila and place the lid on the jar.

Set the jar in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

Let sit for at least 24 hours.

Note: Be sure to pay attention to timing here. Leave it for multiple days and you will start getting a bitter taste in the infusion.

Remove the grapefruit peels from the tequila. You can leave the tequila in the mason jar or decant it into a prettier container.


Store tequila at room temperature for up to 1 month, or in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
