Pink Grapefruit "Margaritas"
Shaking it up this week.. a Signature Cocktail sans liquor. I prefer my cocktails .. yes sans liquor, preferably fruity.
Martha Stewart, http://www.marthastewart.com has this delicious Pink Grapefruit faux Margarita, what a great Signature Cocktail, so tropical looking.
2 tablespoons colored sanding sugar
6 teaspoons pomegranate syrup or grenadine
1 1/2 cups pink grapefruit juice
Place sanding sugar in a shallow dish or plate. Slice six thin rounds from the middle of lime; set aside. Rub lime wedge around rims of six glasses; dip each rim in sugar to coat. Pour 1 teaspoon pomegranate syrup into bottom of each glass.
Place grapefruit juice and 2 cups ice cubes in a blender. Process on high speed until ice is crushed. Pour frozen mixture into glasses, and stir to combine with syrup. Garnish with reserved lime rounds, and serve immediately.
I love the idea of serving a Signature Cocktail without liquor that way no one will feel left out when celebrating watching everyone drink something they can not. Have the bar offer a choice of Signature Cocktails with liquor too.
