Fresh Grapefruit Margarita Drink Recipe

One of the best parts of winter is the vast selection of fresh citrus in the market. From Meyer lemons to clementines and blood oranges, I love cooking and cocktailing with winter fruit.
Grapefruit Margarita
Sweet red grapefruit make a delicious base for margaritas. Simply shake fresh squeezed grapefruit juice with tequila, orange liqueur, lime and simple syrup for an amazingly refreshing drink.

Grapefruit Margarita Drink Recipe
3 ounces blanco or reposado tequila
1 1/2 ounces clear orange liqueur such as Cointreau
4 ounces fresh red grapefruit juice
1 ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup
Grapefruit wedges

Add tequila, orange liqueur, grapefruit juice, lime juice and simple syrup to cocktail shaker. Add ice to cocktail shaker; cover and shake vigorously. Strain into chilled glasses filled with fresh ice. Garnish with grapefruit wedges.

Makes 2 margarita cocktails

Tips:
-For the best flavor, be sure to use freshly squeezed citrus juice.
-Simple syrup is 1 part granulated sugar dissolved in 1 part water. I usually make a batch of simple syrup with 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water, and store in a glass canning jar in the fridge. The syrup will last for several weeks (depending on your cocktail making frequency!).
