Crumbled Feta


Prep time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4-8 margaritas, depending on the size of your glass

Ingredients

1 cup tequila blanco
1 ½ cup fresh grapefruit juice (about 2 grapefruits)
½ cup fresh orange juice (about 2 oranges)
¼ cup lime juice (about 3 limes)
1 jalapeno, sliced thin
4 tsp agave
½ tsp salt, plus extra if you are salting the rims
splash of club soda
lotsa ice
1 lime, sliced for garnish

Spicy Grapefruit Margarita

Once upon a time I swore off tequila, but that was before I knew how to make a good margarita. It’s a hard pass on the pre-made margarita mixes nowadays. Some fresh juice and a good white tequila makes the hangover a little more bearable the next day. Plus, grapefruit has Vitamin C in it. This is soooooo healthy.

Additional thoughts: Do you like it REALLY spicy? Me too. Muddle the jalapenos in the lime juice before adding it all to the pitcher to get even more heat out of them. Hate spicy stuff? Sigh. Just omit the jalapeno.

Making a large batch and don’t feel like juicing 20 grapefruits? I hear ya.
If you’re using store bought grapefruit juice, just omit the agave and use about half the orange juice.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4-8 margaritas, depending on the size of your glass

Ingredients

1 cup tequila blanco
1 ½ cup fresh grapefruit juice (about 2 grapefruits)
½ cup fresh orange juice (about 2 oranges)
¼ cup lime juice (about 3 limes)
1 jalapeno, sliced thin
4 tsp agave
½ tsp salt, plus extra if you are salting the rims
splash of club soda
lotsa ice
1 lime, sliced for garnish

Directions

  1. Add all ingredients, except club soda and ice, to a large pitcher and stir until combined. Let it sit for at least an hour so the jalapeno can do it’s thing. The longer you leave it in, the spicier it will get.
  2. Time to get tipsy? Add a coating of salt to a plate. Using a piece of lime, wet the rim of your glasses and roll them in the salt. Add a lot of ice to each glass and pour the margarita in, leaving a little space at the top for a splash of club soda.
  3. Garnish with a lime slice.
  4. Get tipsy responsibly.
