The Elder Greyhound Cocktail

Servings 1 very decent sized cocktail


  • ½ cup ice
  • ¼ cup blanco tequila or vodka
  • ¼ cup grapefruit juice 
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp St. Germaine elderflower liquer 
  • 1 large mint spring
  • Very bubbly soda water
  • Optional: very thinly sliced grapefruit wheels


  • Place ice, tequila or vodka, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and St. Germaine in a 16-ounce jar. Crush the mint sprig with your hands to release the mint oils, then add the the jar. Shake vigorously for 15 seconds to combine.
  • Top the jar off with ice, then top off with soda water. If desired, slide a couple grapefruit wheels down the side of your glass to make things fahn-cy.
