These Pink Margaritas with Sriracha Salt are perfect for a party! You will love the unique sweet and spicy combination of grapefruit and sriracha salt flavors in this refreshing pink grapefruit margarita recipe.

Do you love margaritas as much as I do? You can use many different fruits and flavors to customize a margarita cocktail. A classic margarita recipe uses tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. I know many people use sour mix, but I can’t stand that stuff!

If you love drinking a cocktail now and then, you will love all of these Fancy Drinks recipes, too! A pink grapefruit margarita with sriracha salt is a refreshing cocktail for any occasion. If you love fruity cocktails, give this Passion Fruit Orange and Guava (aka POG) Cocktail a try.

A margarita can contain many different ingredients, from traditional tequila, triple sec, and sour mix to exotic flavors.

If you love tequila as much as I do, you should also give these cocktail recipes a try:

Categories of Tequila:

Tequila is one of my favorite liquors. It makes me happy and mixes so well in so many different cocktails. There are five categories of tequila. Tequila Blanco, tequila Joven (gold), tequila reposado (aged), tequila añejo (extra rest), and tequila extra añejo (really, really rested).

Orange liqueur is the second ingredient you will find in margaritas. There are so many choices and types of orange liqueur. Each is subtly different, and all three work perfectly in margaritas.

Lastly, the grapefruit juice. Pink grapefruits are sweeter than their yellow counterparts. I bought Texas Ruby Red grapefruits. You can recognize these by the pink hue of their outer skin.

Sriracha Salt:

I bought my sriracha salt at a cute spice shop in Sacramento, Allspicery. You can also find it online. Badia makes a great one you can find in most grocery stores. You can also make homemade Sriracha Salt.

Tools Needed:

  1. Awesome margarita glasses.
  2. A juicer to get all of that juice out of those grapefruits.
