While margaritas are an obvious cocktail for a Mexican fiesta, fresh grapefruit juice gives this fan-favorite drink an unexpected twist. The gorgeous light pink grapefruit color is flirty and feminine and the tartness of the fruit will make you and your party-goin’ friends pucker for another round!

We love the idea of continuing to twist the classic margarita, not only in the flavor and color, but also when it comes down to presentation. Instead of pouring the margs into typical margarita glasses, serve them in vintage tumblers! You can also add pink sea salt to the rims for a little sparkle, but we like the look of a simple slice of grapefruit resting on top. Gorgeous, right?

Salud!
