If you think you’ve seen this post before, it’s because you have, but great drink recipes deserve to be seen again, that and the fact that we’re out-of-town made this recipe the perfect do-over.
We were deep into last winter when I last shared these addictive margaritas with you. So now it’s hot out and the perfect time to make some! Go forth and enjoy!
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.
If you have one of these, plan on staying home. You won’t want to go anywhere anyway, because where ever you go won’t have these fantastic margaritas!
Have a great Friday!!!
