Cooking With Honey – Honey Grapefruit Margarita

grapefruit margarita

With the weather heating up, this is a delicious way to cool down!  The honey and the grapefruit combine wonderfully.

Yield:  2 servings

Ingredients

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)

Directions

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.

Rosa Cinco De Mayo

Rosa Cinco de Mayo™

The abundant flower clusters of this repeat-blooming Floribunda are of a novel, smoky-russet hue that makes it a standout, while also blending well with other colors. It looks great in a cottage garden, and bees are attracted to their yellow “target”!

Cooler weather brings out the smoky tones in its 3 1/2-inch, ruffled double flowers. Growing 2-4ft tall with glossy green leaves and bushy habit, Cinco de Mayo™ is equally suited for use as a specimen in a border or for mass planting.  A 2009 All-America Rose Selections winner.

I found it at White Flower Farm.
