Blame it on my mother, but I am a huge fan of margaritas–especially the Barefoot Contessa’s recipe for Pink Grapefruit Margaritas from her cookbook, How Easy Is That. Honestly, it’s everything you could ever ask for in a good marg: refreshing, not too sweet, and relatively easy to make (and drink).

For those of you who are planning a summer barbeque or simply a night in with friends, this is a must-serve cocktail. But, if alcohol isn’t for you, just swap out the liquor for sparkling water or Sprite. It’s just as delicious!
