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        Tequila
  • 1              Lime cut in wedges, optional Kosher salt.

If you prefer to rim the glasses, use a lime wedge and to moisten the glass rim and 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, add the tequila, and stir. (I personally just add it all to the blender- I like slushy.  It’s totally up to you)

Makes 4 drinks.

* Just as a note: it is important to use Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice because it is much sweeter than regular grapefruit juice and it has the lovely pink color.
