Time for Summer Cocktails!

Bring out the mini umbrellas…its time for some yummy summer cocktails!

 

First up…

 

::Pink Grapefruit Margarita::

1 cup – ruby red grapefruit juice
1/2  cup – fresh squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)
1 cup – triple sec orange liqueur
3 cups – ice
1 cup – silver tequila
1 – lime cut in wedges, optional Kosher salt.

 

If you prefer to rim the glasses take a lime wedge and rim, then dip in salt, if you do not like a salted rim sprinkle a touch of salt in each glass, the salt really brings out the flavor.

 

Combine the grapefruit juice, lime juice, triple sec and ice in a blender. Pour into a large pitcher (or just keep it in the blender) and pour in the tequila, stir. (I personally just added it all to the blender- I like slushy, that is totally up to you)

 

Makes 4 drinks!
