Grapefruit Margaritas

15 m


  • 1 tablespoon grated grapefruit zest
    1 tablespoon kosher salt (optional)
    1 cup white tequila, chilled
    1 cup grapefruit juice, chilled
    ½ cup lime juice, plus 1 lime wedge
    ¼ cup Triple Sec
    2 tablespoons simple syrup (see Tip)
    Ice cubes
    Grapefruit slices for garnish
    Lime slices for garnish


  • Sprinkle grapefruit zest on a small plate and combine with salt (if using).
    Combine tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, Triple Sec and simple syrup in a pitcher.
    Rub the rims of 6 glasses with the lime wedge and dip in the zest (or zest-salt mixture). Fill the glasses with ice and top with about ½ cup margarita mixture each. Garnish with grapefruit and lime slices, if desired.
    To make ahead: Cover and refrigerate the margarita mix (Step 2) for up to 2 days.
    Tip: To make your own simple syrup: Bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar. Let cool for 30 minutes and then refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour. Makes about 1½ cups.
