Ruby Red Margarita

These margaritas are tart and sweet all at the same time. They are my favorite drink right now and I wanted to share them with you, but most of you don’t live next door so giving you the recipe is the best I can do. I don’t like grapefruit as a rule, but these don’t taste like grapefruit. I just thought I’d mention that just in case you’re like me and don’t really like the taste of grapefruit, give these a try.

I forgot to put the fresh lime in the picture.

You want the 12 ounce Limeade. There’s a small size……….you want the big guy.

Take 2 tablespoon straight from the can undiluted and pour it in a small shallow plate.

Add 1/3 cup of sugar to another shallow dish.

Pour the remaining Limeade into a container.

Add 1 can of water to the Limeade.

Grab your glasses and dip each one in the Limeade.

And then the sugar.

The perfect sugared rims. Sweet then tart.

Add 2 cups of the Ruby Red Grapefruit juice to a pitcher.

Followed by 1 cup of the Limeade mix.

Then add 2 cups of Triple sec liqueur.

Then add 2 cups white Tequila………….I know it’s a lot, but it’s sooooo good!

Slice your lime and try to forget about how much alcohol you just put in that pitcher. I mean you’re going to share it. I love reasoning, when I reason with myself I always end up being right.

Slice the lime segment so it will hold on to the glass.

You can of course skip the fresh lime all together, but I love the color it adds.

Give it all a good stir.

And pour over ice.

I can’t tell you just how good these are.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! and Cheers!

talk to you next year…..sorry, I couldn’t help myself

    Hi Caroline,
    I found you through BYC. I am a “wannabe” country girl too, although I am living my dream out in the country on a five acre acreage with my family and chickens. I grew up on a dairy farm and as I got older the more I was drawn back to the country.

    Glad to have found you and I will bookmark you!

    Joy I’m so glad you came by to say hello! Sounds like you’ve got the perfect set up for you, your family and your animals. Don’t you just love the BYC forum? Hope to hear from you again.
    talk to you soon,
