I have been drinking pink grapefruit juice quite often lately. I am not sure if it is the warm weather or the fact that it is pink but I am loving it lately. You know I love Summer, pink and pretty drinks! Margs are an essential part of good summer fun! They can be frozen or chilled, you can use a multitude of ingredients and can make them super pretty. They are most definitely one of my favorite party drinks. They are even delish when they are non-alcoholic.
1 cup ruby red grapefruit juice (ruby red is sweeter and makes a better tasting drink)
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.
1. If you prefer to rim the glasses take a lime wedge and rim, then dip in pink sanding sugar or you can use salt, if you do not like a salted or sugar rim you can sprinkle a touch of salt in each glass.
2. 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.
3. Add pink edible glitter to the blender to mix in the drink or add it to the sugar to salt/sugar you rim the glass with to add some sass to your classy marg!
