If you love a classic margarita recipe, this slight diversion offers the same tangy-sweet appeal, yet with a touch of pearly pink intrigue.

It’s important to use freshly squeezed grapefruit juice in this recipe to get the absolute brightest flavor.

Place all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Then shake vigorously to mix. Pour the margaritas over ice and enjoy.

This Pink Grapefruit Margarita recipe tastes marvelous with a salt or sugar rim, although I still prefer the salt for contrast.

The flavor is citrusy, slightly bitter, and oh so vibrant. The kind of drink you want to sip with someone you love. Trust me, by the end of the glass you’ll be blushing, if you are not already. *wink*

  3. Love your recipe for the Grapefruit Margarita , which , by the way, I have not made yet. Could I use the simple syrup for this rather than the gave syrup? Can you buy the agave syrup pre-made? Never had it so I don’t know if I would like this. Thanks so much !

  6. I’ve had a couple grapefruits hanging around that I haven’t been inspired to use- but now I know just what they’ve been sticking around for! Great recipe :)

  7. love these! can’t get enough go the grapefruit-tequila combo!

  8. LOVE grapefruit drinks! They’re my fav even though I can’t have grapefruit :) haha I play rebel

  9. These drinks sound so good!

  10. I seriously need this in my life!!  Yummy!  Let’s make them this summer.

  11. I’ve also seen this drink called a Salty Dog. They are delicious; I can’t or shouldn’t really have them because grapefruit juice and statins don’t mix well, but an occasional one is just too hard to resist!

  12. This is exactly the margarita I want with my nachos tomorrow!

  13. What a beautiful color and it looks very refreshing!

  14. grasyas

  15. I love grapefruit, and I have never thought of pairing it with a margarita. I love margaritas, but tequila can get a bit dangerous for me :)

  16. It’s like you’ve read my mind — I definitely need a few of these. Love the pretty pink color!!
