Now here's a crowd pleaser that doesn't rely on fake sugar mixtures. It's all fresh, and all delicious. It was actually inspired by something we saw Ina Garten do (but she put too much Triple Sec in which made it too sweet.)
We made it for Adam's parents, brother, and his brother's girlfriend and everyone enjoyed it so much, we had to make another batch right away.
Like any drink, fresh squeezed juice is crucial for the best possible flavor. If you don't want to squeeze grapefruits you can use a good juice from the store but there's simply no substitute for fresh lime juice so don't even try.
To make a batch:
- 1 Cup Tequila
- 1 Cup Grapefruit Juice
- 1/2 Cup Lime Juice
- 1/2 Cup Cointreau/Triple Sec
- Stir in a pitcher with ice (or better yet - shake it up if you're doing individual servings)
- Garnish with a grapefruit twist and a salted rim if you're saucy.
(Or if you are just making a drink for one, substitute parts for cups)
It's not very busy but it's absolutely delicious! Enjoy with your favorite people on a warm sunny day.
