Grapefruit Margarita Recipe (modified from the Los Angeles Times)
Total time: 10 minutes
Wedge of lime
2 teaspoons coarse rim sugar
14 ounces ruby red grapefruit juice, with pulp (about 3 medium grapefruits)
1 ounce lime juice
5 ounces reposado tequila
2 ounces triple sec
4 slices grapefruit or twists
4 wedges lime
1. Run a lime wedge halfway around the rims of four margarita glasses and dip into sugar (we used a cranberry rim sugar- so good because it’s sweet and tart!). Set aside.
2. Combine 7 ounces grapefruit juice, one-half ounce lime juice, 2 1/2 ounces tequila and 1 ounce triple sec in a cocktail shaker. Shake over ice until chilled. Strain into two ice-filled, sugar-rimmed margarita glasses.
3. Garnish with a twist or slice of grapefruit and lime. Repeat to make two more cocktails.
