Grapefruit Margaritas

Happy May Day!!!  Being it is Thursday and all, I thought I would get a kick start to the weekend with this unbelievably refreshing grapefruit margarita.  Monday is Cinco De Mayo as well as my birthday-YIPPEE!!! so there is something to celebrate and we are getting the party started today!!!  Think I may have to call a friend to come right over!!!

Pink Grapefruit Margaritas
1 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice from 2 grapefruits
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice from 4 limes
1 cup of your favorite white tequila-I like Patron
1 cup orange liqueur-I like Triple Sec
Splash of simple syrup or Sprite if you like a touch of fizz
2 cups of crushed ice
1 grapefruit sliced and cut in wedges (optional)
sugar (optional)

Instructions for the perfect margarita:
1. Rub a lime wedge on the edge of 4 empty glasses and rim with sugar. Fill each glass with crushed ice.  
2. Combine juices and alcohols in a small pitcher and stir.  Add simple syrup or a splash of sprite to taste if you desire extra sweetness. 
3. Pour into sugar rimmed glasses and serve immediately with grapefruit wedge.

Cheers to Thirsty Thursday!!!
