How to Make It

Add the tequila, ginger liqueur, and grapefruit juice to the glass, stir gently, add a handful of ice (or one giant ice cube) and top off with club soda. Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary.

Why We Like It

The drink calls for tequila, rosemary simple syrup, and ruby red grapefruit juice. Because rosemary can be overpowering, I swapped out the simple syrup for some ginger liqueur and club soda. My adaptation, The Spring Schwing, isn't as sweet as their cocktail and is perfectly balanced; I could drink this all day, if not all season. It’s also on the strong side, so don’t let the rosy color turn you off. Grapefruit is in season right now, so you should be able to find it at any grocery store. I juiced mine in a juicer, but you can also do it manually—though you might want to strain the pulp if that kind of thing ruins your schwing.
