Thirsty Thursdays: Grapefruit Margarita

May 8, 2014

This grapefruit margarita is the tame version of this Mexican cocktail.  A splash of club soda dilutes the bold flavor of tequila while the ginger ale sweetens the cocktail.  If bloody Mary's or mimosas aren't you're thing, the grapefruit margarita is a light brunch beverage.

1 Part Sauza® Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila
1 part club soda
Juice of 1 fresh grapefruit
1 ½ part raspberry ginger ale soda
Grapefruit wedge for garnish (optional)

In a shaker filled with ice combine all ingredients. Shake well and pour into glass over ice. Garnish with grapefruit wedge.
