Equipment

  • Cocktail shaker with strainer or large glass with tight fitting lid
  • Lowball glass

Ingredients

  • 4 oz fresh grapefruit juice about ½ a large grapefruit
  • 3 oz tequila blanco such as Casamigos
  • 2 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 ½ oz Cointreau
  • ½ oz agave nectar start with ½ oz, but if the grapefruit is very bitter, add an extra squeeze of agave at the end
  • Kosher salt and granulated sugar for rim of glass

Instructions

  • Make the grapefruit marg. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, then add 4 oz fresh grapefruit juice, 3 oz tequila, 2 oz fresh lime juice, 1 ½  oz Cointreau, and ½ oz agave. Secure lid, then shake for 10-12 seconds to aerate the drink.
  • Prepare the glass, then serve. Run a lime or grapefruit wedge along the rim of the glass, then dip upside down into a shallow bowl with equal parts Kosher salt and sugar stirred together. Place ice in glass (optional). Strain into glass, then garnish with grapefruit and/or lime wedges.

Notes

  • Don’t have agave nectar? You can use simple syrup instead! To make simple syrup, combine equal parts water and sugar in a small saucepan, then heat without bringing to a boil until the sugar has melted. We recommend using 1 cup of each, then storing leftover simple syrup in a squeeze bottle or airtight container. When sealed and stored in a refrigerator, simple syrup will keep for weeks.
