Ruby Red Grapefruit Margaritas

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
crushed ice

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.
