Grapefruit Margarita

Another great discovery on Food52, where they call this Grapefruit Margarita a Midwinter Margarita. (As in “In the bleak?)  We love a margarita recipe that uses grapefruit juice — because you know this time of year we’ve got grapefruit! It’s adapted from a book we own (thanks Shannon!): Shake by Eric Prum and Josh Williams of Mason Shaker.
