About this recipe

Tasting Notes

Gently shake the cocktail to avoid breaking up the ice and diluting the drink. It also prevents the break down of fragile ingredients such as the purple bell pepper and cilantro.

If you are having trouble finding purple bell peppers, trying using yellow or orange bell peppers as a substitute. The grapefruit juice enhances all the flavors from the garden.

Serve The Farm with crispy fish tacos and fresh corn salsa. A burst of fresh flavor!
