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:
25ml Tequila Bianco
25ml – 50ml fresh pink grapefruit juice
Pink grapefruit peel to garnish
Halen Môn in a finer flake
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.
