Jalapeno Grapefruit Margarita

Cinco De Mayo which means the 5th of May in spanish is a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and a really good reason to drink Margaritas.  It’s easy to host a Cinco de Mayo party! Making basic Mexican food like salsa, tacos and burritos is not too complicated, add some decorations and mix up some Margaritas and you’re good to go.  This Jalapeño Grapefruit Margarita is simple to pull together and the heat from the jalapeño adds a fun and spicy twist.

I used Casa Noble Tequila Company, one of only three Organic tequila made in the world.  I was so pleased with this tequila, it was smooth and tasted as good as any tequila I have tried.  Using fresh grapefruit and lime is the key to making this Jalapeño Grapefruit Margarita have a clean and pleasant taste.

I am not a fan of the salted rim, but it is always an option.  Pour Kosher salt on a small plate and before pouring your beverage, take a lime wedge and rub the rim of your glass.  Dip the rim in the salt to coat.  Then Continue pouring your cocktail and enjoy!
