Grapefruit Margarita

Cocktail Fridays: Grapefruit MargaritaI could almost believe it was summer today, feeling the sun pour in my windows and warming me up. That is, until I went outside. This time of year always feels like a tease. It is so close to summer. I want to take out my summer dresses, put on my sandals and leave my jacket at home. Of course if I actually did that I would freeze to death.

Last week for Cocktail Fridays I did my best to encourage summer to hurry up with this Strawberry and Basil Mojito. The sun’s been shining all week so maybe it worked. Fingers are crossed that all she needs is another sunny summer cocktail and she’ll stick around till October.

Cocktail Fridays: Grapefruit Margarita

I have a bit of an obsession with grapefruit; I eat one almost every morning. I also have a bit of an obsession with margaritas. No I don’t drink one almost every morning. Perhaps I should; they’re delicious. Grapefruit margaritas are super similar to a regular margarita only they replace the lime with grapefruit. Hello delicious cocktails!

      I like the way you think, Sarah. Campari is one of my favourites! Going to try your suggestion next time I make this :)

    Sounds so good! I’ve been hunting for good mixed drinks recipes for a Mad Men party and, while these seem way too fresh and happy for Don Draper, I might just have to make them!

      Hey Kate,

      A Mad Men party sounds awesome! These might not be quite in character with your theme, but who can turn down a good drink. Have you seen the bourbon sour I posted a little while ago? Might suit your theme a little more and is also crazy delicious. Hope your party turns out fantastic :)

      I really like a little fizz in my margaritas and soda stream is definitely the way to go. So much better for the environment and your pocketbook!
