Katie Lee's Pink Grapefruit Margarita Recipe!

Celebrity chef and best-selling cookbook author Katie Lee recently stopped by The Grove to talk about her new book, revealing, "The story of 'Ground Swell' is set in Mexico, so I drank a lot of margaritas to get the creative juices flowing."

"Extra" brings you Lee's refreshing pink grapefruit margarita... just in time for summer! Enjoy!


  • 2 limes, cut into wedges

  • Kosher salt, in a shallow dish, for rimming the glasses

  • 1 cup ruby red grapefruit juice (fresh or store-bought)

  • 1 tablespoon superfine sugar

  • 2 cups triple sec

  • 2 cups good quality silver tequila

  • ice

Directions: Rub the outside rim of each margarita glass with one of the lime wedges. Press the top of each glass in the Kosher salt to coat the rim.

Combine the grapefruit juice, sugar, triple sec, and tequila in a pitcher. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Serve on the rocks, or blend with ice for frozen. Garnish with a lime wedge.
