These grapefruit margaritas are the perfect balance between sweet and sour! If you're looking for an easy to make cocktail recipe, this is the recipe for you!


  • 1.5 oz tequila, use good quality
  • 3 oz grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 tbsp lime juice, note 1
  • 2 cups ice, note 2
  • optional: kosher salt for rim, note 3


  • Optional: run a wedge of lime around the rim of a cocktail glass, and salt the outside edges.
  • Combine tequila, grapefruit juice, lime and ice in a cocktail shaker (or blender!) and shake/combine until foamy.
  • Pour into a glass and garnish with extra lime or grapefruit.


Note 1 - Adjust lime to taste. I used half a lime which was about 1/2 an oz. Add more or less depending on personal taste preferences.
Note 2 - use as much or as little ice as you want. When you add more ice, you'll get more of a frozen margarita which is just as delicious!
Note 3 - this is totally up to personal preferences. Personally I didn't think it added much to the drink so I left it out.
