In a small saucepan over medium heat, dissolve sugar in ½ cup water. Add cilantro and jalapeño slices (de-seeded for less spice) and let steep off the heat for 10 minutes. Remove sprigs and jalapeño.
Rub the flesh of a grapefruit around the rims of 4 glasses. Spread Tajín on a plate and rub rims in seasoning. Add ice to glasses. In a cocktail shaker, mix mezcal and syrup with ice.
