Grapefruit Basil Margarita for Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is almost here! What better way to celebrate than with a margarita? This year, switch up your margarita game. Try our Grapefruit Basil Margarita for Cinco de Mayo and put a sweet and tart spin on a Cinco cocktail staple! 

Grapefruit Basil Margarita


1.5 oz Silver Tequila  – (We used Milagro… Feel free to use Patron or whatever YOU like!)

0.5 oz Triple Sec

0.5 oz Agave

3 oz Fresh Grapefruit Juice

1/2 Fresh Lime Juiced 

5 Fresh Basil Leaves ?


Start by filling up your tin with ice. Next, pour 1.5oz of [Milagro] Silver Tequila inside. Add 0.5oz of Triple Sec. Pour 3oz of Fresh Grapefruit Juice. Add 0.5oz of Agave (to taste). Next, take your fresh basil leaves in your hand and SLAP them! It warms them up, wakes up the essential oils in the herb, and adds herbaceous aroma and flavor to your cocktail!  Put the basil leaves inside the tin. Now you shake, shake, shake! Strain the mixture over ice. Garnish with a lime slice and a basil sprig.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
