Pink Grapefruit Margarita

My Pink Grapefruit Margarita is the perfect way to use fresh citrus. I use both fresh grapefruit juice and fresh lime juice.

  • 4-1/2 ounces 3 shots of white (blanco) tequila
  • 3 ounces cointreau substitution: triple sec
  • 6-8 ounces of fresh grapefruit juice
  • 2 TBS salt for salted rim
  • Zest from 1 lime
  • 1-2 slices of lime for garnish
  • 1-2 slices of grapefruit for garnish


  • Fill three highball glasses with ice.
  • Add 1 shot of tequila to each glass.
  • Add 1 ounce (3/4 shot) cointreau to each glass.
  • Top each glass with grapefruit juice.
  • Garnish with lime and grapefruit slices.
  • For the Salted Lime Rimmed Glass
  • Place 2 TBS of fine salt on a small plate or in a dish.
  • Zest a whole lime on to the salt.
  • Use a fork to muddle together the salt and zest so the lime zest oil infuses the salt.
  • Rub a slice of lime around the top rim of the glass.
  • Dip the glass into the salt. You might have to roll it around to ensure you are getting all sides of the glass.
