A refreshing cocktail with fresh ingredients and a little bit of a spicy kick! 


  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 3 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar 
  • 3 oz white tequila (I use patron) 
  • 2 oz orange liquor (I use Cointreau) 
  • 1 jalapeno, cut into rings 
  • 23 cups of ice 
  • salt to rim the glass (optional) 


  1. Rim the glass: Use a lime wedge to wet the rim of your glasses and then dip the rim into a plate with some salt. 
  2. Mix the cocktail: Add the grapefruit juice, lime juice, agave nectar, tequila, orange liquor, sliced jalapeno and half the ice to a cocktail shaker and shake until well combined. 
  3. Serve: Add the remaining ice to your glasses and pour the margaritas into your glasses


Mix things up: You can use freshly squeezed orange juice, pineapple juice, passionfruit juice and so on instead of grapefruit in this cocktail!
