Taste tested for our annual "fiesta" and this version is definitely 5 star. So refreshing! The secret is using FRESH SQUEEZED pink grapefruit and key lime juice. Please don't shortchange yourself by using bottled varieties as you lose the wonderful flavor. I'm sure after too many of these my guests may do the Mexican hat dance with little to no coaxing! Ole!

Excellent drink. I added a little more tequila because I like it stronger. I used Tres Agaves agave nectar.

I made this into a "skinny" margarita and used Crystal Light Ruby Red. Tried to do it without the agave, but it needs it. Yum! Yum!

This are so fresh and delicious! Use Ruby Red grapefruit for additional sweetness.

Made this for a busy week Saturday relaxation drink. MMMM Grabbed a carton of Ruby Red Grapefruit juice, Silver tequila from the market where I work and headed home. This was delicious! Sweetened lime juice and a touch of splenda was all the extra I did different. I added a salt/sugar rim, Good combo! Perfect weekend/ summer time drink! Only thing that would make it better would be MauiGirl's tropical umbrella! Thanks Lauren! Keeper for sure! Linda's snapshot is a picture perfect photo of this wonderful drink!

This is definitely a keeper! It's pretty tart and I had to tweak it to suit my personal taste. I used pink grapefruit juice, a little less lime juice, an extra drop of agave nectar, and sugar on the rim.

These were great margaritas but for some reason I could hardly taste the grapefruit.

This was pretty good. Drinks are so reliant on personal taste so this review is more for information than anything: Use fresh juice or expect a different drink. I've had access to some pretty fabulous fresh grapefruit juice and the simply orange brand is the only store bought brand so far that comes close. I only added a pinch of sugar (because it isn't quite as sweet as the fresh I get, but almost). I know that my family would have wanted the sweetener but I don't think I'd need it with fresh juice. I did end up adding more tequila and triple sec (maybe double), just preference. I used fresh persian lime juice for one and "keywest lime juice" (Joe and Nellies) for the other and they aren't even close to the same drink. The bottled juice just made it so harsh. I couldn't bring myself to buy grapefruit when one was the same price as a "good" ruby red juice but I certainly will when it's cheaper. I wouldn't make these if I couldn't get fresh lime juice.
