How to Make It

Add the tequila, ginger liqueur and grapefruit juice to an old-fashioned or stemless wine glass. Stir well, 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

Spring forward this weekend with the Spring Schwing. A natural transition from the Hazy Shade of Winter, and a fancy take on the classic Paloma, this tequila and ruby-red grapefruit cocktail 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.
