Yesterday we kicked off our Summer Entertaining Series with The Best Guacamole Ever. Today, let’s talk margaritas! When we were living in Palm Springs, we had a grapefruit tree in our backyard. And an orange tree, too. It truly was a dream come true. Especially when we realized we had a bottle of tequila (tequila!). Combined with an aversion to going to the grocery store and just the right mix of laziness and ingenuity, this is how Fred Baby invented the recipe for The Best Grapefruit Margaritas. I hope you love these as much as we do!
Here’s what you’ll need: (serves 2)
1 ruby red grapefruit, halved, with the juice squeezed into a bowl
3 shots of tequila
2 shots of orange juice (if you have a fresh oranges, use them; otherwise orange juice from the carton will do the trick)
1 heavy sprinkle of coarse sea salt
How to make the best grapefruit margaritas:
1. Over a shaker filled halfway with ice, add the juice of one grapefruit. Add orange juice, tequila and salt. Shake like a Polaroid picture. Shake it. Shake it.
2. Salt the rim of your glass. (You can do this by running a slice of a lime around the rim of your glass or dunking the rim of the glass into a saucer of water. After, dip the rim into a saucer of coarse sea salt.) Fill each glass halfway with ice.
3. Pour mixture from shaker into each glass and voila, the best margaritas ever!
Pairs extremely well with The Best Guacamole Ever. Enjoy!
p.s. Speaking of Palm Springs, yesterday we escaped cold and gray LA for some much needed Vitamin D and are here soaking up the sun as we speak (er, type)! You can follow our instant updates on Instagram, or simpy tune in here to BussBuss where you can now see all of our pictures posted live as they’re happening in our blog feed. I’m excited to be able to share special moments from the day right in the moment, whether we’re home in LA or off on an adventure on the road or abroad. I love staying connected with you! I hope you enjoy this new feature, too. Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments xx.
