Grapefruit Margarita

With an added kick of flavor from the grapefruit juice, this refreshing take on the margarita is excellent for daytime sipping all summer long. For a bit more sweetness (and a bright color), try ruby-red grapefruit juice.

Ingredients

  • 1 quart fresh grapefruit juice
  • 2 cups Simply Limeade
  • 2 cups white tequila
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • ¼ cup triple sec
  • 5 limes, quartered into wedges
  • Finely ground Hawaiian pink salt, for serving (also available at Trader Joe’s)
  • Ice, for serving

Directions

Mix all liquid ingredients in a large pitcher and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Taste for flavor, adding more tequila if needed.

Rim your glasses by dampening them with a lime wedge then dipping them in finely ground pink salt. Serve each margarita over ice with a wedge of lime. 

Grapefruit Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Grapefruit Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
