A few weeks ago, I made these grapefruit margaritas and since then, I've made them a few more times. I love grapefruit juice, and I love grapefruit cocktails. But I think this one is my favorite. Tart and tangy, with just a tiny hint of sweetness. Perfect for a margarita and perfect paired with spicy food, if you ask me.
I won't say that this is my favorite margarita, though. I had so many different types in Mexico, and for Cinco de Mayo, I am excited to try to recreate some of them. My favorite was a hibiscus juice margarita with lime. But since most supermarkets don't carry hibiscus juice, this is a much more accessible play on the classic margarita.
Juice of 2 grapefruit, about 1 cup
Juice of 3 limes, about 1/2 cup
1/2 cup triple sec or Cointreau
1 cup tequila of choice, I used a Resposado
extra lime wedges kosher salt
Pour the juices, triple sec and tequila into a shaker over the ice. Shake well. Pour into four prepared margarita glasses, rimmed with lime and kosher salt. Enjoy responsibly.
