Delicious alternative to a margarita
Made these for Cinco de Mayo last night and they are delicious! I was a little concerned about mixing the salt with the grapefruit juice, but tried ti anyway and was rewarded with a very tasty drink. Next time I'm going to plan ahead and hand squeeze my own juice, the boxed stuff is a little too sweet for my taste
