Since we had a Citrus Theme for our potluck this month, I thought it would be the perfect time to have a citrus cocktail. This makes for a very refreshing, tangy drink that can either be served over ice, or straight up as seen above. It worked well for the party’s theme, but would also be perfect on a hot summer day. Our Texas grapefruits were sweet enough without adding anything extra, but feel free to add a bit of sugar if it is too tart — just be careful not to add too much.
- 2 1/2 cups freshly squeezed and strained grapefruit juice
- 1 1/2 cup tequila
- 1 1/2 cup cointreau (triple sec also works well)
Combine grapefruit juice, tequila, and cointreau in a large pitcher. Stir well. Chill in refrigerator for at least one hour.
Serve over ice or straight up. If preferred, rim glasses with margarita salt.
