This cocktail is a riff on the classic combination of tequila and grapefruit soda known as a Paloma. Here, fresh grapefruit juice and grapefruit-infused tequila add bright, citrusy flavor to the drink, while elderflower liqueur adds a touch of sweetness.
Note: To make the grapefruit-infused tequila, shave the zest from 2 grapefruits with a vegetable peeler. Add the zest to a 750-ml bottle of silver tequila (pour off enough tequila to make room for the zest). Chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 days and up to 2 weeks. Remove the zest after 2 weeks. The tequila will keep indefinitely once the zest is removed.

Didn't use infused tequila but still good. I've actually been making this drink in almost the same proportions without the club soda, shaken in a cocktail shaker and served up. Friends love it!
Yummy!! wouldn't change a thing.
