RECIPIES Salty Chihuahua December 14, 2018

I found this recipe a few years ago on the Eating Well website, and it’s one of my favorites.  I’m not a drinker, really, but a grapefruit and vodka (Absolut Ruby Red is my most favorite) on special occasions really hits the spot.  It’s really refreshing and not heavy with alcohol “flavor”.  When I found this, I was pretty excited to mix up my “grapefruit and grapefruit”, as I call it, and brought it to a NYE party.  It was a hit and I’m excited that I remembered it!  Also good to note, winter is the perfect citrus season, so grab some grapefruit and get juicing!




  • Coarse salt, (optional)
  • 4 ounces tequila, divided
  • 2 ounces orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau, divided
  • 3 cups grapefruit juice, divided
  • 4 grapefruit slices, for garnish


  1. Wet the rims of 4 glasses and coat with coarse salt (if desired); fill the glasses with ice.
  2. Pour 1 ounce tequila and ½ ounce liqueur into each.
  3. Top each with ¾ cup grapefruit juice and stir. Garnish with a slice of grapefruit.
