A perky Pink Grapefruit Margarita recipe just in time for Cinco de Mayo!
Well, hello there gorgeous! No need to blush.
That is, unless you can’t help it, like this blushing pink grapefruit margarita recipe.
Made with just 4 simple ingredients: fresh squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice, tequila, orange liquor, and agave, these bold little beauties are a refreshing beverage to sip this season while reveling in the leisure moments of life.
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*
