Can you tell that I really love margaritas? I know tequila is really a love or hate thing and I definitely love it. My husband, on the other hand, gags at the very smell of it. More margarita for me!
We decided to focus on limes this week which, of course, made me automatically think of margaritas. And grapefruit is super cheap right now so this was the perfect time to finally try a grapefruit margarita! I’ve been wanting to make the forever but even though I love grapefruit, I was worried they would just be too tart. The ruby red grapefruits are actually really sweet though and this drink doesn’t even require a simple syrup which means there’s hardly any prep involved in these. You just have to squeeze the fruit and then stir it all together in a big pitcher.
They are so yummy and so easy to drink more than you actually mean to. Whoops! I’ll definitely be making these throughout the summer!
Nicole made a really fun Brazilian Lemonade that involved blending whole limes and calls for one of my favorite ingredients: sweetened condensed milk!
- 1 cup freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1/2 cup Triple Sec
- 1/2 cup silver tequila
- lime wedges
In a pitcher, stir together the grapefruit juice, lime juice, Triple Sec, and tequila.
To prepare the glasses, run a lime wedge around the rim and then dip into salt.
Put ice in the glasses and then pour the margaritas over top. Garnish with lime wedges, if desired.
