Pink Grapefruit Margaritas

Pink Grapefruit Margaritas
From: Barefoot Contessa’s How Easy Is That

  • 1 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)
  • 1 cup triple sec orange liqueur
  • 3 cups ice
  • 1 cup silver tequila
  • 1 lime cut in wedges, optional Kosher salt.

If you prefer to rim the glasses take a lime wedge and rim, then dip in salt, if you do not like a salted rim sprinkle a touch of salt in each glass, the salt really brings out the flavor.

Combine the grapefruit juice, lime juice, triple sec and ice in a blender. Pour into a large pitcher (or just keep it in the blender) and pour in the tequila, stir. (I personally just added it all to the blender- I like slushy, that is totally up to you)

The Beats Pro are quickly becoming the standard for sound studios, and its easy to hear why Beats by dre headphones. The detail that youll be able to discern through the Pros is remarkable and you most certainly dont need to be an audiophile to notice it Beats by Dr. Dre. One of my favorite albums to test headphones out with is Love by The Beatles because of its dynamics, varying styles, excellent use of stereo and much more. This album hits nearly every target available, so its a perfect first test Beats by Dre. Its hard to exactly put into words just how well the Beats Pro handle this album, and honestly everything Ive been able to pump through them.

Ive said the following about Beats Studio, but its even more true about Beats Pro Beats by Dr. Dre. If you close your eyes, its easy to imagine that youre listening to an artist in the studio as they lay down the track for the first time. Youll be able to pick out sounds, instruments and details that you never noticed before, even on songs youve heard hundreds of times Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. These headphones provide an amazing experience, which is exactly what they should do every time you listen to your favorite songs. Its like watching a movie on Blu Ray after watching it on DVD several times. Yes, youre experiencing the same thing, but theres so much more to appreciate.

Looks wonderful. I'm a fan of the Contessa, but even more of the grapefruit, and who doesn't love a good margarita?

Thanks for the recipe and review. Peace, Mari
