  • 2 grapefruit whole
  • 2 oz tequila
  • 1 oz triple sec
  • 2 tsp orange juice
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 2 dry measuring cups of ice
  • margarita salt for rim of the glass
  • colored sugar crystals I used orange and yellow
  • a wedge of grapefruit for garnish


  • Mix margarita salt and colored sugar crystals on a small plate. Moisten margarita glass rim by taking a wedge of grapefruit and rimming the glass with the wedge. Dip moistened rim in margarita salt and colored sugar mix.
  • Squeeze or juice the grapefruit to make freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice (my grapefruit yielded approximately 1 cup of fresh juice).
  • Add juice to the blender and pour in tequila, triple sec, orange juice, honey, and ice. Blend until smooth and frothy. For a more frozen effect, add more ice.
  • Pour mixture into a margarita glass and garnish with grapefruit wedge. Makes two large margaritas.
