Ruby Grapefruit Margarita

Another riff on the Margarita: fresh and refreshing

Recipe created for Hope Distillery by Georgia East


25ml Hope Esperanza Agave
2-3 ruby grapefruits, or 250ml grapefruit juice
3 sprigs of fresh mint
Course sea salt
1 teaspoon honey


Sprig of mint


Using a citrus juicer, extract the juice from the grapefruits, keeping the peels.
Place half the peel from a grapefruit into a mortar along with 2 sprigs of mint and crush with the pestle.
Discard the peel and put the crushed mint into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and the Esperanza and shake until combined.
Rub the rim of a tumbler with a little honey and dip into the salt.
Fill the glass with crushed ice and pour over the Esperanza mixture. Top with the ruby grapefruit juice and garnish with a sprig of mint
