With the weather heating up, this is a delicious way to cool down! The honey and the grapefruit combine wonderfully.
Yield: 2 servings
3 oz tequila
2 oz orange liqueur
2 oz fresh-squeezed lime juice (2 limes)
6 oz fresh-squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice (1 grapefruit)
Simple honey syrup, to taste
Salt, for rim
Grapefruit wedges, for serving (optional)
Mix tequila, orange liqueur, lime, and grapefruit juices well. Add a generous splash of simple honey syrup. (To make simple honey syrup combine equal parts honey and water and heat until honey is completely dissolved. Refrigerate after cooling to save.)
Rub one of the used lime or grapefruit rinds around the rim of two glasses and dip in cocktail salt.
Fill each glass with ice and pour in the margarita.
