Salted Grapefruit Margarita

Oh yeah. Margaritas kick ass. Well, tequila kicks ass, so therefore a margarita does too - especially when made with fresh fruit juices. 

We've fallen head over heels for Casamigos Ultra Premium Tequila. If you've not tried it yet, get out there and get a bottle...or five. It's very smooth, yet still has a distinct agave flavor. While we probably most often drink it neat, this simple margarita is by no means a waste of good tequila. 

What makes a good margarita? Simple. Good tequila, fresh citrus and orange liqueur. That's really about all you need. 

 

equipment:

cocktail shaker
strainer
highball glass

ingredients:

2 oz Casamigos Blanco Tequila
1 oz orange liqueur
2 oz fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice
.5 oz fresh lime juice
kosher salt for rim
wedge of grapefruit for garnish


method:

Prepare your glass by running a slice of lime or grapefruit around the rim before dipping into kosher salt. In a cocktail shaker full of ice, add tequila, orange liqueur, grapefruit juice and lime juice. Shake the shit out of it for about 15-20 seconds. Fill your glass with ice and strain margarita into glass.
