Grapefruit Margaritas

So with Super Bowl; XLV coming quickly I thought I better start posting some drink options for my viewers. I am going to give you a recipe for Grapefruit Margarita and in a separate post tomorrow for Traditional Lemon Lime Margarita today. This is simple and easy and you can even serve without the alcohol over ice and they are fabulous.

 Grapefruit Margaritas Ingredients:
4 cups Grapefruit juice
4 cups sugar
8 cups water
4 cups ice
1/2 shot triple sec
1 shot tequila

Juice about 8 to 10 Grapefruits and set aside.

Take sugar and water and bring to a boil

Next you will see the edges start to bubble stir constantly.

Until you have a rapid boil like this.

Take Grapefruit juice place in large picture.

and ice to Grapefruit juice.

Next add boiling water mixture and stir.

Last add 1/2 shot triple sec and 1 shot tequila per 8 oz glass of Margarita mix, either serve on the rocks or blended in blender. Garnish with a lemon or lime.

This serves about 16-20 (8 oz Margaritas) You could make it stretch if you stretch if you blend and add ice. Or poor over a full glass of ice. But don't forget you mix one at a time so if you were making premixed you would add the 16 shots of tequilla and 8 shots of tripple sec.

Salud and Bon Appetite
