This easy-drinking batch cocktail comes from Maggie Hoffman’s new book, “The One-Bottle Cocktail: More Than 80 Recipes with Fresh Ingredients and a Single Spirit.” Juice from peak-season grapefruit is mixed with lime, honey, and tequila for a simple crowd-pleasing drink from the mind of bartender Matt Friedlander.
