Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Sprinkle grapefruit zest on a small plate and combine with salt (if using).
  2. Combine tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, Triple Sec and simple syrup in a pitcher.
  3. Rub the rims of 6 glasses with the lime wedge and dip in the zest (or zest-salt mixture). Fill the glasses with ice and top with about ½ cup margarita mixture each. Garnish with grapefruit and lime slices, if desired.
  • To make ahead: Cover and refrigerate the margarita mix (Step 2) for up to 2 days.
  • Tip: To make your own simple syrup: Bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar. Let cool for 30 minutes and then refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour. Makes about 1½ cups.
