Cantaritos are Mexican tequila cocktails served in clay cups! Similar to the Paloma, this drink stars grapefruit soda and citrus.


  • 2 ounces* tequila (blanco or reposado)
  • 1 ounce fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 ounces grapefruit soda


  1. If using the traditional clay cup for serving, soak it in cold water for 10 minutes before using. Otherwise, use a highball glass.
  2. Combine the tequila, orange juice, lemon juice and lime juice in the glass with a pinch of salt.
  3. Fill the glass with ice and top with grapefruit soda. Garnish with citrus wedges.
