Okay, if you are a mixologist, you might just want to leave now. I’m calling this drink a margarita because there’s tequila involved and it pairs so nicely with my fish tacos I’m dishing out for our cinco de mayo party this weekend.
The grapefruits were so fragrant at the market, I couldn’t resist. As soon as I caught the scent walking past them I knew they would be perfect with some tequila and seltzer. Is this an actual margarita? To me it just needs tequila to be called as such!
It’s just about the easiest “margarita” you’ll ever make. Rim the glass with a wedge of grapefruit, salt the rim, squeeze the grapefruit to fill the bottom little lip of a margarita glass; top with a shot of tequila, a splash of seltzer (might I suggest grapefruit seltzer) and few ice cubes. Garnish with grapefruit. That’s it!
Light and refreshing and without all that sugary sour mix!
