6 oz fresh pink grapefruit juice, divided
4 oz grapefruit soda, preferably Ting
1 oz Grenadine (recipe follows)
¾ oz lime juice
Lime wheels to garnish

1 Pour tequila, 4 oz grapefruit juice, grapefruit soda, Grenadine and lime juice into an airtight container. Freeze overnight and up to 3 days.

2 Place two 8-oz glasses in freezer for at least 30 minutes.

3 Scrape drink mixture into blender and add remaining 2 oz grapefruit juice. Blend until smooth, stopping and scraping down bowl if necessary. Divide among chilled glasses with a spoon.
