Great read for the holidays!

Happy new year folks. We've been having fun times over the holidays whilst we've opened during the day; we've had a couple of weeks with no evenings shifts and had time to entertain with family and friends. Lovely!! So we started the hols' with these margaritas, refreshing and delish with a good book before the guest arrive for the BBQ!!

  • 1 cup          ruby red grapefruit juice
  • 1/2  cup    fresh squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)
  • 1 cup         triple sec orange liqueur
  • 3 cups      ice
  • 1 cup        silver tequila
  • 1   lime cut in wedges
If you prefer to rim the glasses take a lime wedge and rim, then dip in salt, if you do not like a salted rim sprinkle a touch of salt in each glass, the salt really brings out the flavor.
Combine the grapefruit juice, lime juice, triple sec and ice in a blender. Pour into a large pitcher (or just keep it in the blender) and pour in the tequila, stir.
Makes 4 drinks.
