Fizzy Grapefruit Margarita

A fun and fresh twist on classic margaritas that is perfect for Cinco de Mayo!

Ingredients

For each margarita:

3
ounces freshly squeezed grapefruit juice (about 1/2 large grapefruit)
1
ounce fresh lime juice (about 1 large lime)
1 1/2
ounces silver tequila
1/2
ounce orange liqueur, such as triple sec or Grand Marnier™
Splash club soda

For the rims and garnish:

1
part kosher salt
1
part granulated sugar
Lime wedges, for garnish
Small grapefruit wedges, for garnish
Ice

Directions

  • 1 Begin by preparing the glasses: Place the sugar and salt on a small plate. Run a lime wedge around the edge of the glasses to moisten them, then tap the edges of the glass in the sugar/salt mixture so it sticks. Fill with desired amount of ice and set aside.
  • 2 In a cocktail shaker or lid with a tightly fitting jar, add the lime juice, grapefruit juice, tequila, and triple sec. Top off the shaker with ice, then close the lid and shake vigorously. Strain margarita into the prepared glasses, then top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with lime and grapefruit wedges. Enjoy immediately.

A refreshing grapefruit margarita for Cinco de Mayo!

As prepared by Well Plated,

This effervescent cocktail is the perfect summer drink. 

A well-made margarita is my favorite cocktail. Every sip tastes of warm beaches, bright sunshine, and places I’d generally prefer to be rather than my desk. Although I enjoy margaritas year-round (try ordering one in January—it feels like beating winter), at no time are they more appropriate and, dare I say, mandatory than Cinco de Mayo.

Although a classic margarita made with fresh lime juice (don’t you dare touch that premixed stuff!), triple sec, and tequila always hits the spot, margaritas are also open territory for fruity experimentation. Today’s Fizzy Pink Grapefruit Margaritas are fun, fresh and dangerously easy to sip.


Fizzy Grapefruit Margarita

The base of the grapefruit margaritas mirrors the classic: fresh lime juice, triple sec, and tequila. The addition of fresh pink grapefruit juice adds an addictive, fruity tartness, and a final splash of club soda makes the margaritas delightfully effervescent.

Once the ingredients are gathered, it’s time to prep the glasses. I rimmed each with a 50/50 blend of sugar and salt. The salt is classic, while the sugar offsets the tartness of the grapefruit and lime.

Once the glasses are properly sugared and salted, all that remains is to measure and shake. Place the ingredients in the cocktail shaker with ice, give it a vigorous up-down for at least 30 seconds (it will feel awkwardly long, but trust me, it’s worth it), and then pour.

Finish the margaritas with a fizzy splash of club soda, raise your glass, and sip deeply. This pretty pink drink is a fiesta in a glass!
