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


  1. Combine juice, tequila and triple sec in pitcher.
  2. Chill at least three hours.
  3. Moisten rim of 8 ounce glasses, preferable with grapefruit juice.
  4. Dip in plate containg sugar to coat rim.
  5. Add ice cubes.
  6. Pour chilled drink in glasses, don't disturb sugar rim.

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!
