Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle grapefruit zest on a small plate and combine with salt (if using).

  • Combine tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, Triple Sec and simple syrup in a pitcher.

  • 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 1/2 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 1 1/2 cups.
