The internets have told me that this week is National Margarita Week! The perfect inspiration for me to get back to cocktails on bookcooker. This little hot ticket is a chili grapefruit margarita. The perfect drink as the dreary winter drags on. If you are like me and did not plan a tropical vacation to help get you through it (or maybe you live in Southern California or Florida - damn you!), this drink can help dull the pain... for one night at least!
