Roasted Grapefruit Margaritas
Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday. I made these roasted grapefruit margaritas this past weekend and wanted to share the recipe. One of my coworkers recently passed along this cocktail and it's too good not to share. Perfect for happy hours and upcoming summer days. It's light and refreshing. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did. Cheers!
6 grapefruits halved
Sprinkle with a little sugar and roast however you want...under the broiler or on the grill
Squeeze all the juice and pulp out and put in a blender
Blend for a minute on high
Make a simple syrup with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water
1 cup good silver tequila like (we love Casamigos ) and 1/2 cup Grand Marnier
Mix it all together and serve with Cajun seasoning on the rim
Also, good with minced fresh mint (we left out because we didn't have any)
Shake well before each pour and enjoy!
This recipe only makes about 6 drinks
