Pink Grapefruit Margarita Recipe

This refreshing and slightly tart Pink Grapefruit Margarita combines the robust flavors of tequila with the bright, citrusy notes of pink grapefruit. This cocktail is not only visually appealing with its vibrant hue but also offers a burst of fresh flavor that makes it an ideal drink for summer evenings or a festive brunch.


  • 2 ounces tequila (preferably silver or blanco for a cleaner taste)
  • 1 ounce orange liqueur (like Cointreau or Triple Sec)
  • 1.5 ounces fresh pink grapefruit juice
  • 0.5 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 0.5 ounce simple syrup (adjust based on your sweetness preference)
  • Salt for rimming the glass
  • Ice cubes
  • Grapefruit slices and lime wheel, for garnish


  • Prepare the Glass: Begin by rimming your glass with salt. To do this, rub a lime wedge around the rim of the glass and then dip it into a plate of salt. This adds an extra layer of flavor to each sip.
  • Mix the Cocktail: In a cocktail shaker, combine the tequila, orange liqueur, pink grapefruit juice, lime juice, and simple syrup. Fill the shaker with ice, covering the liquid.
  • Shake: Shake vigorously for about 15 seconds. The goal is to chill the mixture thoroughly and mix all the ingredients well.
  • Serve: Strain the mixture into the prepared glass filled with fresh ice. Avoid pouring the melted ice from the shaker into the glass to keep the cocktail from being too watered down.
  • Garnish: Garnish with a slice of grapefruit and a lime wheel on the rim of the glass.
  • Enjoy: Serve immediately and enjoy the fresh, tangy flavors of your Pink Grapefruit Margarita!

The key to the perfect Pink Grapefruit Margarita is to use fresh juices, which enhance the drink’s bright and zesty flavors. Cheers to a beautiful, tasty cocktail that’s sure to be a hit!
