Random Recipe: Ruby ‘Ritas

Ruby Red grapefruits are a South Texas specialty. Their red flesh is sugar-infused, making them much more tasty than plain old grapefruit. While home for the holidays this weekend, we hastily bought an 18-pound bag from a man with a roadside stand, and then thought “What are we going to do with 20 sweet, delicious grapefruit?”

Thankfully my parents had a large bottle of Jose Cuervo. So, presto: Ruby Red Ritas!

Because the nectar is so sweet, all you need is:

-Juice of several fresh Ruby Reds (we like to keep the pulp in the drink)

-Tequila

-Ice

-Salt for glass lip

And voila:

Ruby Ritas
