Grapefruit Margarita…perfect for fall and so good! I used @CasaAzulSoda Grapefruit Tequila Soda. They are made with real tequila and the flavor and crispness is on point! I have been enjoying them by themselves but was hosting some friends and wanted to jazz them up, and they elevated the classic marg quite a bit.

Substitutions and Variations

  1. If you can’t find Casa Azul Soda, you can use your tequila of choice and grapefruit soda!
  2. You can leave the cinnamon stick out, if you are not a fan of cinnamon.
  3. I used salt for the rim, but you can do your rim of choice.

Chef Nadia’s Tip

Make sure you let the cinnamon, grapefruit juice combo completely cool after.
