I love that Cinco De Mayo is an excuse for some yummy tacos, tons of guacamole, and some nice strong margaritas! I usually opt for a classic skinny girl margarita but this year I was in the mood for a girly grapefruit version (sorry mark!). See the recipe below by Ina Garten but I do add a couple of my own elements from her original recipe! Cheers!
1 Lime Cut in to Wedges
½ Cup Lime Juice, freshly squeezed
1 Cup Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice
1 Freshly Squeezed Grapefruit
2 Cups Ice
1 Cup Orange Liqueur
1 Cup Tequila, white
If you like a salt rim on the glasses, rub the lime around the edge of the glass then dip the rim of each glass lightly on a plate of kosher salt. Set aside to dry.
Combine the grapefruit juices, lime juice, orange liqueur, Tequila and ice into a large pitcher. Stir with a large spoon (you can also blend these). If you’re not serving the margarita in a salted glass, stir a ¼ teaspoon of salt into the pitcher of margaritas! Trust me it will make a difference!
