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. Divide between 4 glasses, then top with <a href="https://spindriftfresh.com/drinks/grapefruit-sparkling-water/" style="color: #889c45;" target="_blank">Spindrift Grapefruit</a>, dividing it evenly among the four cocktails. Garnish with jalapeño, grapefruit and serve immediately.
