Spicy Grapefruit Margaritas


September 20, 2021

These Texas sweet and spicy grapefruit margaritas are amazing! You definitely need a dash of Briggs True if you want this fresh grapefruit margarita, but I love the kick that the pepper provides.

  • Cook: 5 mins
  • Yields: 1 Serving


1 oz. fresh lime juice (about 1 large lime, juiced)

1 tsp light agave nectar or 2 teaspoons simple syrup

1 thinly sliced jalapeño round (⅛th to ¼th inch wide, a little goes a long way!)

2 oz. grapefruit juice (about ½ large grapefruit, juiced)

2 oz. grapefruit juice (about ½ large grapefruit, juiced)

1 ½ oz. 100% agave blanco/silver or reposado tequila

3 parts Briggs True Texas Seasoning ,
Optional: Briggs True Chili Mix, Lime wedges, Small grapefruit wedges for garnish


1First, prepare your glasses. Pour Briggs True Texas Seasoning on a small, rimmed plate. Run a lime wedge around the outer top edge of your glasses, then roll the edges in the chili-salt so it sticks. Place one big ice cube or a few smaller ice cubes in each glass.

2In a cocktail shaker or mason jar, add the lime juice, agave nectar, and jalapeño slice. Use a muddler to crush the jalapeño. Pour in the grapefruit juice and tequila, then top off the shaker with ice. Fasten the lid on securely and shake well.

3Strain the mixture into your prepared glasses. If you want to be cute about it, garnish the drinks with a small wedge of grapefruit, sliced halfway through the middle so it rests on your glass.


Git Ya Some & Enjoy!
