Pink grapefruit margarita

by | Jul 3, 2014


Per cocktail:

  • 25ml Cointreau
  • 25ml Tequila Bianco
  • 25ml – 50ml fresh pink grapefruit juice
  • Fresh lime
  • Pink grapefruit peel to garnish
  • Halen Môn in a finer flake

It’s been lovely and warm here on the salty isle in recent weeks, and a cocktail we first enjoyed across the pond with some friends in the US seems to be doing rather a good job of quenching our thirst.

Here’s our version of the Pink Grapefruit Margarita:

Firstly rub a lime wedge over the edge of each glass, trying to make sure you get an even spread. Sprinkle the salt onto a small plate and rim each glass in the flakes.

Put all of the liquids into a shaker with plenty of ice. Shake and pour over more ice into each glass. (If you don’t have a shaker you can mix in a jug)

Finish with a pink grapefruit or lime garnish. We dare you not to drink more than one.
