Pink Grapefruit Margarita




Summer days are approaching and I look forward to sitting at my patio table, with a refreshing cocktail in my hand, relaxing after a day spent working in my garden. I am always ready to try a new cocktail recipe that will become my go to drink for the summer. This Pink Grapefruit Margarita sounded especially good and anything citrus based can always be counted on to be refreshing.

The recipe I used was for a pitcher full, but I easily divided the amounts and put together two individual cocktails, one for me and one for Melissa, who is home for the summer until she starts her new job, saves a little and moves out again. We both agreed that this drink will be perfect for summertime happy hour.


Pink Grapefruit Margarita


Rub a wedge of lime or lime juice around the rim of a glass and dip in kosher salt. Add a generous amount of ice to glass. Add 1/2 cup ruby red grapefruit juice, 1/8 cup lime juice, 1/4 cup triple sec, 1/4 cup tequila. Stir together. Enjoy!

  1. This sounds delicious, Vicki--I love citrus flavored anything! There is a new sort of Summer Shandy by Leinenkugel called Grapefruit Shandy. I want to try that. And your recipe would be so nice for a girl's get together. Do you have the quantities for a pitcher? Thanks!

    I think it's neat your daughter will be home for awhile. I wish both of mine were still here!! ;-)

  9. My absolute favorite margarita. In a glass, I make mine with a shot+ of tequila, a splash of margarita mix and grapefruit juice to taste. So refreshing!
