My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Pink Grapefruit Margaritas

Maybe we should pretend it's summer and start with a pretty new drink for sipping on the porch. This is prefect. Let's have some guacamole and chips and sit in the swing.

Pink Grapefruit Margaritas
6 drinks
print recipe

1 lime cut in wedges
Kosher salt, optional
1 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)
1 cup triple sec orange liqueur
3 cups ice
1 cup good white tequila

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

Combine the grapefruit juice, lime juice, triple sec, 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. It will make a difference.

Serve ice cold garnished with lime wedges
