Mercado | Grapefruit Margarita

I love margaritas because there can be so many variations and flavors that can be added to this.  It is so fun to drink and I love going to Mexican restaurants with an extensive (one separate) menu dedicated SOLELY to margaritas.  That’s why I love Mercado in West Hollywood. They have other locations as well in the Los Angeles area, but this is the one I go to the most.  My favorite drink is definitely the grapefruit margarita because it has a sweet but tangy kick to it.  Perfect for a summer day, afternoon, or night.   Basically, you can drink it any time. No judgment here.  However, drinking out can get pretty expensive for the wallet and the calories for cocktails really do add up.  So why not make it in the comforts of your home to cut out those calories and costs?
