Consuela’s Grand Opening and Cocktail Contest


GrapeFruit-MargaritaTeam consuela has a new drink of choice: the grapefruit margarita. It’s delicious, pretty and perfect for spring.  It was such a hit at a recent party that we had to share the recipe with you all!


Grapefruit Margarita Recipe (modified from the Los Angeles Times)

Total time: 10 minutes

Servings: 4

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.
