- 2 tablespoons kosher salt
- 9 ounces fresh pink grapefruit juice (from 1 1/2 large grapefruits), spent skins reserved
- 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar, loosely packed
- 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha
Place the salt in a small, shallow plate in an even layer. Moisten the rim of a coupe glass by running the already-squeezed grapefruit skin around the rim. Dip glass into salt and set aside. Repeat with second glass.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour grapefruit juice, Sriracha, and brown sugar into cocktail shaker. Shake until well chilled, about 15 seconds, and strain into salt-rimmed coupe glasses. Serve immediately
