TGIF, right readers? Or perhaps I should say TGISB--thank goodness it's spring break! Well, it is for me at least, and I want to celebrate with a drink (One? Who am I kidding here?). More specifically, this drink.
I've have made them a couple of times and just fell in love with them. I'm a big grapefruit fan, so I figured I'd like them. I completely underestimated how much I loved them. Sweet-tart pink or red grapefruit, orange liqueur, a splash of fresh lime, and a generous dose of tequila--I mean what's NOT to love? Cheers, reader. Happy Friday. Or happy spring break. Or happy Tuesday...whichever you're celebrating.
3 oz. tequila (We like Hornitos.)
2 oz. orange liqueur such as Triple Sec or Cointreau
2 oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice, from approx. 2 limes
6 oz. fresh-squeezed pink or red grapefruit juice, from 2 medium grapefruits
simple syrup, to taste (optional--We didn't use any)
salt, for rim (optional)
grapefruit wedges, for serving (optional)
1. Mix tequila, orange liqueur, lime, and grapefruit juices well. If you think you need a little more sweetness, add a splash of simple syrup.
2. Rub one of the used lime or grapefruit rinds around the rim of two glasses and dip in cocktail salt, if desired.
