It's Cinco de Mayo, and that means it's margarita time!! I'm a big fan. Especially of the variety my dad used to make. But his recipe is a closely-guarded family secret, so I can't divulge. However, I cam across this recipe and had to try it. It didn't disappoint, and that is coming from the gal who normally doesn't like a 'rita on the rocks! This drink is refreshing, pretty, and strong! It'll knock your socks off (literally!) and I just know you'll love it as much as I do. Mix up a pitcher for your next fiesta!
2 limes, cut into wedges
salt, in a shallow bowl or plate
1 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups triple sec
2 cups tequila
Rub the lime wedge around the rim of a margarita glass to moisten. Dip and roll the glass in the dish of salt so that the rim is completely covered.
Mix juice, sugar, triple sec, and tequila in a large pitcher. Stir to combine well and ensure the sugar is dissolved.
Place crushed ice in each glass. Pour margarita over ice and garnish with additional lime wedges.
