Grapefruit Daisy

Paul Sevigny, a Florida-based beverage consultant and head bartender at the Florida Room in Miami, embraces Florida's year-round produce possibilities and abundant farmers markets. This drink highlights one of the darlings of winter — grapefruit. The tequila is light but barrel-aged, lending the cocktail a hint of smoke and citrus.

2 ounces Reposado tequila

1/2 ounce fresh lime juice

3/4 ounce fresh grapefruit juice

1/2 ounce agave syrup

Splash club soda

Fresh basil (optional garnish)

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Shake. Strain into an oversized highball. Fill with crushed ice. Add soda, and garnish with fresh basil.
