OK, kiddies! Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner! I am going to start posting some stuff you might want to consider if you are throwing a party. This one is eye-catching so I thought I’d start here.
Pretty basic stuff. You can either use fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice (preferred) or bottled Ruby Red (easier). Fresh is way better but sometimes it just isn’t practical. This can be served blended or over rocks (as I did it) and with either a salt or a sugar rim. I went sugar. A sprig of fresh mint would look pretty, too. I forgot that part.
Pink Grapefruit Margarita
If you are putting salt or sugar on your rim, put the salt/sugar on a plate, wet the rim with a wedge of lime, dredge the rim through the stuff & set aside to dry as you make your cocktail.
2.5 ounces white tequila
1 ounce triple sec
5-6 ounces pink grapefruit juice
Juice of 1/2 lime
Salt & lime for garnish
Salt or Sugar to rim your glass
Shake up the tequila, triple sec, grapefruit juice & lime juice over ice in a shaker or blend it up in a blender with a cup of ice. Pour into your glass, add a pinch of salt to the cocktail & garnish with lime slices.
