I thought since the weather is great and I just returned from girls weekend I would share the awesome cocktail we enjoyed at the lake. These margaritas are originally a Barefoot Contessa recipe. My friends and I loved this drink. Crisp, sweet, and tangy. They are also such a pretty color it is impossible to turn one down! These are a perfect drink to sip on with your girlfriends while relaxing away from the boys!
Pink Grapefruit Margaritas
From: Barefoot Contessa’s How Easy Is That
1 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)
1 cup triple sec orange liqueur
3 cups ice
1 cup silver tequila
1 lime cut in wedges, optional Kosher salt.
If you prefer to rim the glasses take a lime wedge and rim, then dip in salt, if you do not like a salted rim sprinkle a touch of salt in each glass, the salt really brings out the flavor.
Combine the grapefruit juice, lime juice, triple sec and ice in a blender. Pour into a large pitcher (or just keep it in the blender) and pour in the tequila, stir. Makes 4 drinks.
