Last week I saw the Barefoot Contessa make Pink Grapefruit Margaritas with a friend on her cooking show. They made them to go with chili. They were pink and beautiful and both women looked like they were really enjoying them. I decided I had to have one.
Summer has not arrived in Seattle yet. It keeps teasing us with warm, sunny days and then it shies away again. This weekend was hot and beautiful out. I worked in my garden and soaked up the sun. I was a bit of a homebody and decided not to have company, but I did want others to be able to come and hang in my yard. So, I decided to have the girls over Monday night instead. I don’t know what the deal is, but by Monday night the cold weather was back. Oh, we still sat in my backyard and drank margaritas. We did a fine job pretending it was summer, but we all had to wear sweaters.
So, summertime or not, these margaritas are a sucess. They are super tasty and will help you pretend it is summer when it is cold out. I will be making this recipe again and again.
The Barefoot Contessa’s Pink Grapefruit Margaritas
Use the optional lime wedges and salt to salt the rims of your cups. Now, if you are like me and don’t really care for a salted rim, add 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the pitcher of margaritas instead. Don’t skip this. It will make all the difference in the world!
To make the pitcher of margaritas, simply blend all the other ingredients together and serve!
