It’s 11:00….AM and I’m drinking a margarita and snacking on Christmas cookies.

Someone has to test the cocktails before Christmas brunch tomorrow! We wouldn’t want to set out a disappointing cocktail.

Food prep is well underway, the house is being straightened, last-minute gifts have been wrapped and everything outside is covered in a gorgeous, pristine white, blanket of snow. We will be having a white Christmas for the first time since moving back to Washington.

We have a lot to be thankful for this Christmas and we look forward to a happy and healthy New Year.

Grapefruit Margarita

Silver Tequila

Simply Grapefruit Juice

Simply Lime Juice

Perrier

Grapefruit & Lime Slices

Coconut Sugar

Sea Salt

True Lime Crystallized Lime

I didn’t really measure….it depends on how many you’re serving. I made a big glass pitcher. I’d say about 2 Cups of tequila, 3/4 jug of grapefruit juice, and 1/2 a jug of lime juice. I made mine yesterday, so it will “marinate” in the fridge until brunch tomorrow. Then when I’m ready to serve it I’ll rim the glasses with a mixture of coconut sugar, sea salt, and the crystallized lime. Put a good amount of ice in a tumbler, fill 3/4 of the way with the tequila mixture and then top off with Perrier. Add a wedge of grapefruit and a wedge of lime to the glass.

Enjoy!

  1. Enjoy your white Christmas. We would like a cool Christmas. It would be lovely to see temperatures in the 60’s. It is still in the mid 80’s and very humid.

    • I have a friend who lives in Florida and she said the same thing. They are going to have to have their air conditioning on! Happy Holidays! πŸ™‚

  2. I’m so glad the snow has fallen and that you were able to enjoy a white Christmas. How beautiful. Of course you need to try cocktails before you serve them! I hope your Christmas was merry and blessed xx
