Summer Drinks

This Grapefruit Margarita looks perfect for a Summer Afternoon.

Here's the recipe from Confections of a Foodie Bride
Texas Grapefruit Margaritas
2 oz tequila
2 oz orange liqueur
2 oz fresh-squeezed lime juice (~2 limes)
6 oz fresh-squeezed Texas grapefruit juice (1 grapefruit)
Simple syrup, to taste (optional)
Salt, for rim (optional)
Grapefruit wedges, for serving (optional)

Mix tequila, orange liqueur, lime, and grapefruit juices well. If you think you need a little more sweetness, add a splash of simple syrup.

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.

Serves 2

What's your favorite summer cocktail?
