I love trying new recipes. We have some old “tried and true” recipes on this blog that I always fall back on, our pizza sauce, fajita marinades, and pie crust, we just don’t play around with those. I know I would be disappointed if I tried a different one, so we just use our favorite recipe, all the time. Most of the time, we are trying out 5-6 new recipes a week. I am so lucky my husband agrees to that, although, I don’t give him much of a choice 🙂
There are countless margarita recipes out there in the blog-o-sphere and many I am dying to try, but after trying these, I have made them three times. They are so refreshing. I think the grapefruit and lime juice go perfectly together, the simple syrup and orange liqueur adds depth that makes the drink not quite so tart. I am posting these right in time for Cinco de Mayo, but don’t feel like that is the only occasion you can make a homemade margarita for!
This recipe yields enough for 2 servings. You can easily double/tripe/quadruple/CINCO this recipe.
