Pink Grapefruit Margaritas

Ummm it's Friday. Here are the top five reasons you need to make this tonight. 1. Did I mention it's Friday? Yeah.... so there's that. 2. My dear friend Elyssa (thanks Elyssa!!) inspired me to make these delicious margaritas after she made a version at her house for Cinco de Mayo. So get inspired! 3. Everyone needs a little more pink in their lives. 4. Every holiday deserves a weeklong celebration (hence my weeklong birthday extravaganzas). It's still Cinco de Mayo week... therefore Margaritas are in order! 5. Because it's five o'clock somewhere! Pink Grapefruit Margaritas (this makes two...)

  • 4 oz tequila
  • 6 oz pink grapefruit juice (fresh squeezed)
  • juice of four limes
  • 1 t honey or agave nectar (optional - I left this out because I love the tartness of grapefruit, but some like it sweeter!)
  • fresh basil, tarragon or thyme to garnish (also optional - lime wedges work, too!)
  • plenty of ice
  • cute mason jars and stripey pink straws… totally mandatory
  • Shake or stir the tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice and agave together, and pour over ice.
  • Garnish with the herbs, limes and salt if you wish.
  • Drink up!
