TGIF, right readers? Or perhaps I should say TGISB–thank goodness it’s spring break! Well, it is for me at least, and I want to celebrate with a drink (One? Who am I kidding here?). More specifically, this drink.
I’ve have made them a couple of times and just fell in love with them. I’m a big grapefruit fan, so I figured I’d like them. I completely underestimated how much I loved them. Sweet-tart pink or red grapefruit, orange liqueur, a splash of fresh lime, and a generous dose of tequila–I mean what’s NOT to love? Cheers, reader. Happy Friday. Or happy spring break. Or happy Tuesday…whichever you’re celebrating.
3 oz. tequila (We like Hornitos.)
2 oz. orange liqueur such as Triple Sec or Cointreau
2 oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice, from approx. 2 limes
6 oz. fresh-squeezed pink or red grapefruit juice, from 2 medium grapefruits
simple syrup, to taste (optional–We didn’t use any)
salt, for rim (optional)
grapefruit wedges, for serving (optional)
1. Mix tequila, orange liqueur, lime, and grapefruit juices well. If
you think you need a little more sweetness, add a splash of simple
2. Rub one of the used lime or grapefruit rinds around the rim of two glasses and dip in cocktail salt, if desired.
3. Fill each glass with ice and pour in the margarita. Serves 2 (So you’ll probably want to make a double batch. I’m just sayin…)
