Grapefruit Margaritas

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Margaritas are one of my favorite cocktails, I found this recipe on Pinterest and thought it was a wonderful way to create a simple, but flavorful margarita.

Recipe from Gimme Some Oven.

-2 ounces freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice
-1 1/2 ounces tequila
-3/4 ounce orange liqueur
-3/4 ounce freshly-squeezed lime juice
-agave nectar for sweetening, to taste
optional: lime wedge and salt for rimming the glass

If you would like salt-rimmed glasses, begin by running a lime wedge around the top rim of a glass in order to give the salt something to stick to.  Cover a small place with salt, and dip the rim in the salt until it is covered with your desired amount of salt.  Set aside.

Add grapefruit juice, tequila, lime juice and Cointreau to a cocktail shaker, and shake or stir until combined.  Taste, and if you would like it to be sweeter (most people do!), stir in a half teaspoon of agave, and then repeat as needed until the mix reaches your desired level of sweetness.

Fill glass with ice.  Pour in the margarita mixture over the rocks. Garnish with an extra lime or grapefruit wedge if desired.
