Weekly Nightcap - Grapefruit Margarita
it's friday! not only does that signify the start of the weekend, but it also means it's time for the weekly nightcap. this friday series features some of my favorite cocktails just in time for a little evening happy hour.
i am clearly in need of a little sunshine because i am craving things that feel like vacation, fish tacos, blueberry pancakes, and now margaritas! i saw grapefruit margaritas on an episode of "the best thing i ever ate" and i have been unable to think about anything else since. unfortunately, the episode didn't give a recipe, so i was on my own but i think it turned out really well.
one sip and i felt like i was south of the border. now, all i need is a little sand between my toes and some sunscreen. if only . . .
4 oz smooth tequila
4 oz triple sec
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz simple syrup
4 oz fresh grapefruit juice
shake all ingredients together and pour over ice.
