Do you love margaritas as much as I do? You can use so many different fruits and flavors to customize a margarita cocktail. A classic margarita recipe uses simple ingredients; tequila, triple-sec, and lime juice. I know a lot of people use sour mix, but I can’t stand that stuff!
A pink grapefruit margarita with sriracha salt is a deliciously refreshing cocktail for any occasion.

Did you know there are over a thousand different brands of tequila? That fact just blows my mind. Tequila comes in many different quality levels and price points, too.

Categories of Tequila for Pink Grapefruit Margaritas
Tequila is one of my favorite liquors. It makes me happy, and it 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).
You won’t believe all of the choices you have when you shop with Drizly. Drizly has hundreds of different tequilas that you can try. And even better, they are delivered right to your doorstep!! Buying tequila doesn’t get any easier than that!
Drizly sent me Cabeza Tequila to try. It is smooth and was perfect with the pink grapefruit. (You can get this yummy tequila from Drizly too!)
Making Margaritas with Orange Liqueur, Triple Sec, and Curacao
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.
Drizly sent me a delicious orange liqueur by Patrón. This liqueur has a light and fruity orange flavor.
Ruby Red for Delicious Pink Grapefruit 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 to their outer skin.
My pink grapefruit margarita recipe wouldn’t be complete without sriracha salt.
