Pink Mar­garita


Gourmet Traveller (Australia) - - Food -

Mar­gar­i­tas are a true party starter, and while we love a clas­sic, a jig­ger of grape­fruit juice in the mix adds an­other layer to the sharp­ness of lime, and turns these blush­ing pink.

Sea salt flakes

30 ml lime juice (re­serve one

squeezed lime half)

45 ml tequila

30 ml pink grape­fruit juice 15 ml Coin­treau

Thinly sliced pink grape­fruit or lime wedges, to serve 1 Pour salt into a small bowl to the depth of about 1cm.

Rub re­served lime half around the rim of a chilled coupe or Mar­garita glass, then dip rim in salt to lightly coat.

2 Com­bine tequila, grape­fruit and lime juices and Coin­treau in a cock­tail shaker and add ice to three-quar­ters full. Shake un­til well chilled, then strain into glass and serve with a slice of grape­fruit or lime.
