This recipe is easy as 1, 2, 3. Also – it’s SO yummy! We tried our hand at making mixed drinks with BACARDI® Mixers and are never going back. We like to enjoy a good happy hour at the office, and when summer rolls around, they usually happen more frequently – and include more fun drinks. A hot day in the office = My reason to party. Hence, this refreshing Grapefruit Margarita we whipped up in no time. In a short trip to our local grocery store, we stocked up on fresh citrus (limes and grapefruits for this particular recipe) and the Margarita BACARDI® Mixer – as well as the Strawberry Daiquiri and Piña Colada flavors, because we foresee making a lot of these yummy concoctions in the future :). Don’t forget the rum!
We’re pretty proud of ourselves for serving up this refreshing summer sipper but we can’t lie – it was SO simple. The fresh juices used in the BACARDI® Mixers give the drink all the natural and delicious flavor it needs. We just infused it with a little grapefruit! Mainly because we like things with a touch of pink to them ;). Here’s how we made it:
Ingredients (makes 6 servings):
1 can Margarita BACARDI® Mixer
6 shots BACARDI® Rum
1. Juice 1 1/2 grapefruits and slice 1/2 a grapefruit for garnish
2. Mix the BACARDI® Mixer, rum, and grapefruit juice in a blender with ice until smooth
3. Rub the rim of your glasses with grapefruit and dip them in sugar (cue the mouth watering)
4. Pour and garnish with a sliver of grapefruit on each glass
But really, these babies got “OMG, delicious” reactions out of everyone at the office. Our bar cart (and freezer) will forever be stocked with these BACARDI® Mixers. If you want more ways to mix these up, there are endless – we mean it – recipes and Party planning ideas for you to try out, like this Berry Berry Daiquiri made with the Strawberry Daiquiri BACARDI® Mixer.
