Today is National Tequila Day, a wonderful reminder to enjoy a tequila beverage. Sure it is mid-week, but who cares?! A margarita would pair nicely with your Taco Tuesday menu for dinner tonight. Here’s a margarita recipe we featured a while back that is sure to get you singing to Chente tonight.
Yields 2 cocktails
Wedge of lime
2 teaspoons coarse margarita salt
14 ounces ruby red grapefruit juice, with pulp (about 3 medium grapefruits)
1 ounce lime juice
5 ounces reposado tequila
2 ounces triple sec
4 slices grapefruit or twists
1. Run a lime wedge halfway around the rims of four margarita glasses and dip into salt. Set aside.
2. Combine 7 ounces grapefruit juice, one-half ounce lime juice, 2 1/2 ounces tequila and 1 ounce triple sec in a cocktail shaker. Shake over ice until chilled. Strain into two ice-filled, salt-rimmed margarita glasses.
3. Garnish with a twist or slice of grapefruit. Repeat to make two more cocktails.
