Grapefruit Thyme Margarita Recipe

Margaritas are the perfect spring/summer cocktail, aren’t they? They’re easy to make, refreshing, and everyone loves them!

This Grapefruit Thyme Margarita from the 2019 Cocktail Calendar is my favorite spin on a classic margarita.

Seriously y’all - this cocktail is the perfect blend of a little bit tart with a lotta fruity fun. And it’s SO pretty, which is always a plus :)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Optional: wet the rim of your glass with a slice of lime. Dip the rim in a plate of sea salt.

  2. Add a slice or two of grapefruit to the bottom of your glass, and a lime slice to the rim of your glass.

  3. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, grapefruit juice, lime juice, agave, and tequila.

  4. Shake until cold, and strain into your glass.

  5. Garnish with a sprig of thyme (I like to break off a few pieces and stir it into the margarita as well!) and enjoy!
