How to Make Grapefruit Margarita

Step-by-Step

  1. If you like salt on glasses, rub a lime around the edge of the glass rims, then dip rims of each glass in a plate of kosher salt. Set aside to dry for a few minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
