Margarita 101

July 11, 2008 at 12:51 am Leave a comment

One of my favorite margarita bibles is Kim Haasarud’s 101 Margaritas.  I actually refer to it as “Margarita 101.” Many times I can just sit and drool over her recipes as I flip the pages.  It’s been a long day, so tonight I’m giving her Grapefruit Margarita a try:

Grapefruit Margarita

  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 2 ounces freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1 ounce Cointreau
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1/2 grapefruit slice for garnish

Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously.  Strain into a glass. Salting the rim is optional.

If I was going to put it in the Margaritarator.  I will mix a pitcher of margis by keeping the 2-2-1-1/2 ratio, then add it to the Margaritaville pitcher 13 ounce fill line.  

Bottoms Up:  I used Odwalla Grapefruit juice, Don Julio Reposado and a meyer lemon.  I salted the rim, but I like salt.  If you like the tart, sour taste of grapefruit juice, you will like this mix.  Haasarud recommends using pummelos to make the best grapefruit margis.
