The Houseboat on Lake Ouachita with our dear friends from Louisiana, is by far our favorite summer vacation. I love to mix up a different cocktail each evening for us to sample, and am thankful to have adventurous people, who are willing to try something new, to share my passion with.

5 mint leaves, muddled

3 parts fresh grapefruit juice

2 parts tequila

1 part Cointreau

1 squeeze lime juice
