Grapefruit Margarita 2Who doesn’t love a good margarita? Baby, I love them! But not that sweet & sour mix bottled stuff that tastes more like floor cleaner than a classically gorgeous cocktail!

Hit the curb crappy cocktails! Our Grapefruit Margarita meets all those requirements and has a Spicy Salt Rim to really get the party started! grapefruit Margarita 1
