Instead of being tart as one would expect from a grapefruit-based drink, this margarita is slightly smokey, crisp, and just a little spicy. It's perfect for winter. Curl up next to the fire and enjoy!
For those of you who have seen my recipes on here, it is of no surprise that I love this margarita! I wish I could say I came up with it myself but I didn’t. This is a special garden cocktail from the Medlock Ames Tasting Room and Alexander Valley Bar. I visited the area (again) while driving a Chevy Volt around California touring sustainable farms and food producers. This drink was definitely a highlight!
