Cocktail Hour // Grapefruit Bitters Margarita


Are you more of a wine or a cocktail kind of person?  To me cocktails feel like a special occasion.  Wine is a cozy night in with a home-cooked meal and a cocktail is celebratory– a night out for an anniversary or girl’s night. (Both of which are on my calendar this week!)  When I do mix up a cocktail at home, especially these days, I have been into simpler combinations.  This Grapefruit Bitters Margarita is sort of a happy accident that happens to be really good!  (Melissa also pointed out to me during our shoot that I really play favorites with tequila.  It’s true!  You could sub vodka for tequila in this recipe for a totally different taste.  Sort of like a play on the screwdriver.  Anyhow, without further ado, let’s get shaking!



  • 1/2 cup grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • dash of orange bitters
  • ice



Combine all ingredients and strain over one enormous round ice cube or just regular ice, but the round cube is pretty fun, yes?
