Broiled Grapefruit Margarita with Candied Grapefruit Slices

It’s National Margarita Day!

Heads up my tequila loving, margarita making, salt rim dippers….

Today we celebrate everything Margaritas!!

Margaritas brimming with the flavor of grapefruit, sweet!

I think broiled grapefruit often gets a bad rap. Often considered boring, bland and only for breakfast.

Sad.  I love it!

Well today we are throwing caution to the wind and serving up this breakfast treat with a splash of tequila, heck ya!

Big juicy grapefruits topped with brown sugar and broiled until plump, golden and sticky good.

Add tequila, lime juice and Cointreau, can it get any better? Oh ya, we’re topping this Rita off with a thin slice of candied grapefruit (remember to save the leftover candied grapefruit syrup for the margaritas).

Are you excited yet?

This margarita taste like South Texas: Warm, Comforting, Homey
