Grapefruit Mint Margaritas

Grapefruit Mint Margaritas Title

Sometimes inspiration comes from the strangest places. Like a meme. With a dinosaur. Talking about Greek Easter. And margaritas.

Huh?

Exactly.

You’ll see what I’m referring to when you scroll down. Aside from this inspirational dinosaur, my thought behind margaritas for Greek Easter was that Cinco de Mayo also happens to be on the same day this year. And while my celebrations of this holiday day are usually limited to eating copious amounts of Mexican food, this year, it’s a small addition to what happens to be my favorite celebration of the year. Throw in the fact that I am in the middle of final exams and I think it’s pretty clear why there would never be a better time to share this with you.

A wonderful friend, who I’ve decided is a reincarnated Julia Child, shared this recipe with me. When she passed it along she made me promise to stick to the specific tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice she recommended. I promised of course! Then I added a subtle touch of mint and decided this drink couldn’t get any better!
