Cantarito

Cantarito highball sour cocktail with tequila, orange juice, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and grapefruit soda

The Cantarito is a regional specialty from Jalisco, Mexico, named for cántaro, the small clay vessel in which it is traditionally served. Essentially a Paloma dressed up with more fresh juice, the Cantarito is refreshing and bright, and easy to make.

Jarritos is the typical choice for grapefruit soda, but many cantinas and roadside stalls in Mexico have switched to less-sweet Squirt. We’ve seen recipes that call for simple syrup or agave nectar, but we think that a healthy pour of orange juice provides more than enough sweetness.

Add all of the ingredients to an ice-filled glass or clay mug. Stir gently to integrate and top with ice. Garnish with a wedge of citrus and a dusting of chile salt (like Tajín or sal de gusano).

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
