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.

Ingredients

Instructions

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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
