  1. Mix the tequila, lime juice, agave or honey and grapefruit juice in a large jug or pitcher. Stir well, then chill for at least 1 hr or until ready to serve.
  2. Rub a wedge of grapefruit around the rims of 8 x 300ml tumblers. Put the sea salt on a saucer and dip each glass rim into the salt. Fill each glass with ice, then divide the Paloma mix between them – they’ll be about ¾ full. Top up with soda water and garnish each with a grapefruit wedge to serve.
