While we would never say no to a classic margarita, it's always good to mix things up a little, especially at the end of a long season - enter the sweet citrus-y tang of pink grapefruit.
So to celebrate #nationalmargaritaday, we bring you a classic with a twist - the pink grapefruit margarita. It's SO good, SO tangy and SO fresh - you'll love it!
Pink grapefruit margarita
4 oz tequila
1 cup pink grapefruit juice
1/2 oz simple syrup (optional)
1 cup sparkling water/soda water to top off
Sea salt flakes
Grapefruit wedges, for garnish
Crushed ice (approx 1 cup
Cut a wedge of grapefruit, and run it around the circumference of the rim of your glasses. Turn the glass upside down and press gently into salt.
Combine ice, tequila, juice, and simple syrup (if using) into a cocktail shaker and shake until the mixture is cold.
Fill your glasses with ice, then strain the mixture into the salted glass. Finish with a splash of sparkling water and garnish with grapefruit slices.
This recipe serves two but you can triple it for a 6-serving pitcher.
