  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 1 1x



  • 1/2 oz. agave nectar
  • 1/2 oz. hot water
  • 1/2 lime, squeezed
  • 2 oz. tequila blanco
  • 3 oz. grapefruit juice
  • splash of pamplemousse (grapefruit) La Croix (to top)
  • 1 scoop of coconut milk-based, vanilla bean ice cream
  • mint sprigs, for garnish, optional
  • organic cane sugar + lime wedge (for sugared rim)


  1. Make the agave simple syrup. In a small bowl, combine hot water and agave nectar. Stir well and set aside.
  2. If you’d like a sugar rim, run a lime wedge across the top of your glass. Place cane sugar in a wide, shallow bowl (a saucer or plate will work too) and gently turn the glass upsidedown, dipping the glass in sugar.
  3. Using a cocktail shaker, combine agave simple syrup, lime juice, grapefruit juice and tequila. Shake well.
  4. Add 1 scoop of vanilla bean ice cream to your cocktail glass.
  5. Pour in the grapefruit/tequila mixture. Add a splash of grapefruit La Croix to top off, and garnish with mint as desired.
