One sip of the pink grapefruit margarita at Nada and was immediately hooked.
Since I don’t really like a salted rim, I took a tip from Ina Garten and add a pinch of salt to each drink. If you like a sweet cocktail, add sugar or use bottled sweetened ruby red grapefruit juice.
Make in batches.
Combine 7 ounces grapefruit juice, 1/2 ounce lime juice, 2 1/2 ounces tequila, 1 ounce orange liqueur and a pinch of salt in a cocktail shaker. Shake over ice until chilled. Strain into two ice-filled margarita glasses.
Garnish with a twist or slice of grapefruit. Repeat to make two more cocktails.
14 ounces freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice, with pulp (about 3 medium grapefruits)
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
5 ounces reposado tequila
2 ounces orange liqueur
Pinch of salt
Garnish: grapefruit slices or twists
