These are so gooooood. Refreshing and the sugar rim tastes just right with the tangy grapefruit juice. From Sunset magazine.

Excellent! No too sweet and just right! I cut the alcohol by one-half and it still packed a pretty good wallop for this light-weight. Nice sipper for hot weather and spicy food. Thanks!

This was a very refreshing and easy margarita. I used grapefruit juice from a carton, and did not do the sugar rim.

So good! I scaled this down to two servings, and juiced two grapefruits. I used slightly less of both the tequila and triple sec (must've been a first for me - I usually use more alcohol!). Thank you!
