Cocktail of the Week: Grapefruit Margarita

Sure, a glass of wine or a beer is a nice way to unwind – but every now and then, you deserve a happy hour that's a little more...hmmm. What's the word? Refined! Kelly Sparks of Queen Bee Mixology is graciously sharing a new cocktail with us every week, just in time for Happy Hour.

Whatever the season or the reason, margaritas are always a solid choice. This Grapefruit Margarita is a refreshing twist on a fan-favorite cocktail.


  • 3 oz. freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1 oz. fresh lime juice (about 1 large lime)
  • 1 1/2 oz. silver tequila
  • 1 oz. orange liqueur, such as triple sec or Grand Marnier


  1. In a cocktail shaker, add the lime juice, grapefruit juice, tequila and triple sec.
  2. Top off the shaker with ice and shake vigorously.
  3. Strain margarita into a prepared glass rimmed with salt.
  4. Garnish grapefruit wedge.
