Yield: makes 1 cocktail
Time: 10 minutes
- 1 ¼ slice of Cara Cara
- 2 oz. Vodka (we used Luna Sea vodka from Santa Cruz)
- 2 oz. Cara Cara juice
- 2 oz. tonic
- 2 oz. soda
- Kosher salt
Build a medium-heat fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to medium. (Alternatively, heat a cast-iron grill pan over medium-high.) Place the Cara Cara on grill and cook, turning once, until lightly charred, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and set aside.
In an ice-filled rocks glass, add vodka and Cara Cara juice. Top with tonic and soda, and garnish with grilled grapefruit slice sprinkled with Kosher salt.
