To Try: Pink Grapefruit Margaritas

Copyright 2010, Ina Garten, From “Barefoot Contessa:  How Easy Is That?”

Makes 4 drinks
  • 1 lime, cut in wedges, optional
  • Kosher salt, optional
  • 1 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (4 limes)
  • 1 cup orange liqueur, such as Triple Sec
  • 2 cups ice
  • 1 cup white tequila

If you like a salt rim on the glasses, rub the lime around the edge of the glass and then dip the rim of each glass lightly in a plate of kosher salt. Set aside to dry.

Combine the grapefruit juice, lime juice, orange liqueur, and ice in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into a large pitcher and stir in the tequila. If you’re not serving the margaritas in salted glasses, stir 1/4 teaspoon of salt into the pitcher of margaritas. Believe me, it will make a difference!

Serve ice cold.
