These grapefruit margaritas are refreshing with just the right hint of sweetness and a subtle kick of spice from the jalapenos.

  1. First, prepare the glasses. Mix together the salt and chili on a small, rimmed plate. Run a lime wedge around the outer top edge of the 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.

  2. In 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.

  3. Strain the mixture into the prepared glasses. Garnish the drinks with a small wedge of grapefruit, sliced halfway through the middle. Cheers!
