Pink Grapefruit Margaritas
From: Barefoot Contessa’s How Easy Is That
- 1 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
- 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)
- 1 cup triple sec orange liqueur
- 3 cups ice
- 1 cup silver tequila
- 1 lime cut in wedges, optional Kosher salt.
If you prefer to rim the glasses take a lime wedge and rim, then dip in salt, if you do not like a salted rim sprinkle a touch of salt in each glass, the salt really brings out the flavor.
Combine the grapefruit juice, lime juice, triple sec and ice in a blender. Pour into a large pitcher (or just keep it in the blender) and pour in the tequila, stir. (I personally just added it all to the blender- I like slushy, that is totally up to you)
Makes 4 drinks.
* Just as a note: it is important to use Ruby Red grapefruit juice, it is much sweeter than regular and it has the lovely pink color.
The classic margarita is made with orange liqueur, most commonly triple sec. Blue curacao is also an orange liqueur and thus, blue margaritas have long been around. We find the flavor of the blue a little more bitter so we've balanced the drink by using half blue curacao and half triple sec. Add in the requisite fresh lime juice, a bit of simple syrup and the unique flavor punch of sea salt and this drink is lip-smacking good.
