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
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
