This is one fruity frozen cocktail
These grapefruit margaritas are a sweet frozen treat ready for this summer heat.
Fruity margaritas are a summertime staple, and this drink of the week is a very sweet frozen treat. Grapefruit margaritas are some of my favorites. They are tangy, tasty, and damn right yummy. I was introduced to grapefruit margaritas at a baby shower. They used them as a way to let everyone know that they were having a little girl. It was a cute touch.
We’ve mixed up a few different margaritas before in the Brio Smart Life Kitchen, but these are some of the tastiest by far. I also wasn’t really strict with the bottling for this recipe either. I just used what I had left of the Lunazul Blanco Tequila from when we made the Blood Orange Margaritas and some Deep Eddy’s Ruby Red vodka, but use any kind of grapefruit vodka you like. You can use freshly squeezed grapefruit juice or from the carton, it won’t hurt the drink in any way if you choose to use Tropicana. I take shortcuts too and got some fresh grapefruit juice from our local fresh market.
Frozen cocktails are not everyone’s shot of whiskey. Some people like their margaritas on the rocks, and you can totally do this recipe that way if you feel so inclined. Since I made this as a frozen recipe, if you want to do these on the rocks: Forgo the blender for a cocktail shaker and pour the cocktail over ice. It’s simple really.
So let’s show you how to make these Grapefruit Margaritas.
