Total Time: 10mins
For each margarita:
3ouncesfreshly squeezed grapefruit juice, - about 1/2 large grapefruit
1ouncefresh lime juice, - about 1 large lime
1 1/2ouncessilver tequila
1/2ounceorange liqueur - such as triple sec or Grand Marnier
Splash club soda
For the rims and garnish:
1part kosher salt
1part granulated sugar
Lime wedges - for garnish
Small grapefruit wedges - for garnish
Begin by preparing the glasses: Place the sugar and salt on a small plate. Run a lime wedge around the edge of the glasses to moisten them, then tap the edges of the glass in the sugar/salt mixture so that it sticks. Fill with desired amount of ice and set aside.
In a cocktail shaker or lid with a tightly fitting jar, add the lime juice, grapefruit juice, tequila, and triple sec. Top off the shaker with ice, then close the lid and shake vigorously. Strain margarita into the prepared glasses, then top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with lime and grapefruit wedges. Enjoy immediately.
To make a large batch, stir all of the ingredients except for the club soda together in a pitcher and refrigerate. When ready to serve, fill individual glasses with ice, pour in the margarita mixture, then top each glass with a splash of club soda. Alternatively, you can add ice and the club soda to the whole pitcher just before serving.
The recipe as written will yield a more tart margarita. If you prefer a sweeter drink, add a half teaspoon light agave nectar, to taste.
