Today is National Margarita Day, which seems like a pretty great way to celebrate a Monday!
Now, a lot of us hear margarita and instantly think of the tequila-heavy, straight-from-the-blender versions that we may have ordered on 2-for-1 day way too many times in our 20s. These days, I tend to gravitate toward a subtler variant that utilizes freshly squeezed juice. Freshly squeezed pink grapefruit, Meyer lemon, or blood orange juice makes for a fabulously fresh cocktail!
- 1 cup fresh Ruby Red grapefruit juice
- 1 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/2 cup Cointreau
- 1/2 cup tequila
- 1 tablespoon agave syrup
- 1 cup crushed ice
- Kosher Salt
Stir together the grapefruit juice, lime juice, Cointreau, tequila, and agave syrup in a pitcher, and mix with ice cubes. Rub the rims of 4 rocks glasses with the edge of the lime, and dip in kosher salt. Strain the cocktail into prepared rocks glasses.
