Pink Grapefruit Margarita

It’s National Margarita Day which means I’ll be enjoying an ice cold margarita today (sans alcohol).  But you know I’ll be shaking up a cocktail for the Mister.  One thing I’ve learned is that a DIY project should be followed with a good cocktail, so Alan will definitely get to enjoy some of that sweat equity tonight after knocking down a couple of walls.  I love traditional margaritas, but I also like a good twist on a classic.  The ruby red grapefruit juice adds just enough sweet to the tart lemon that makes a refreshing cocktail that can be enjoyed year round.

Pink Grapefruit Margarita:

1 Lime, cut in wedges

Sugar in the Raw

1/4 cup ruby red grapefruit juice

Juice from 1 lime

1/4 cup Peligroso Tequila

1 + 1/2 cup ice

Instructions: Rub lime around the edge of the glass and then dip the rim of glass lightly in a plate of sugar in the raw.  Combine the grapefruit juice, lime juice, tequila, and 1/2 cup ice in a cocktail shaker then strain into glass.  Top with ice and lime wedge.
