I feel like Julie in Julie & Julia right now because all I want to say about this drink is “Grilled fruit is a revelation!” I got my husband to grill a bunch of fruit for me when he was doing kebabs last weekend and I couldn’t stop smelling the limes. They smelled like honey and pie and all kinds of things that they definitely don’t smell like when they aren’t grilled.
I really, really enjoyed this drink. I don’t know if it tasted super different from a regular non-grilled margarita but the grilled fruit slices on the glasses were so delicious that I don’t even care.
I’m pretty excited to grill some more fruit for drinks, starting with the Grilled Peach and Jalapeno Margarita that Nicole made this week. The only way to improve a margarita is to add a little kick and those look amazing!

from Grill Grrrl
- 3 pounds limes and lemons plus a few oranges, sliced in half
- ½ cup sugar
- ¾ cup tequila
- ¼ cup triple sec
- 1 cup simple syrup to taste
- 1 pitcher full of ice
- Dip the sliced citrus in a bowl of sugar so they have a light coating. Grill the citrus on medium high heat until they have char marks. Let them rest until they are cool enough to be juiced .
- Fill your pitcher halfway full of ice, then add the tequila and trip sec. Add the juice to the ice/tequila mixture. Add the simple syrup in small batches until the proper sweetness is achieved.
