Margaritas aren’t just for the summertime. Winter brings beautiful citrus from the Southern states, which we use to mix up this grapefruit-fueled marg. —Eric Prum & Josh Williams

1 1/2 shots fresh grapefruit juice
2 slices fresh lime (to garnish)
chile salt (equal parts dried Mexican chiles and sea salt) for rim


  1. Combine tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and grapefruit juice in a shaker.
  2. Add ice to above the level of the liquid and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
  3. Strain the mixture into chilled rocks glasses rimmed with chile salt and containing large cubes of ice. Garnish with lime slices.

Note: 1 shot = 1.5 ounces
