Remember when everyone in Hollywood was on the “Grapefruit Diet”?
That was a terrible idea (like every super low-calorie fad diet). Adding grapefruit to a margarita, on the other hand, is a great idea.
Margaritas are best enjoyed on hot, sunny days, and the fresh grapefruit juice adds to the tart lime flavor while making the drink even more refreshing.
This one also has a slight kick, thanks to a pinch of chili pepper and a few slices of jalapeno. Can’t you just taste the grilled fish tacos you’ll eat while sipping on it?
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Cocktails are often loaded with added sugar, but this one is all fresh fruit juice and nutritious spices. The reason grapefruit was the star of a fad diet, by the way, is that it’s been linked to boosting metabolism and promoting weight loss in animal studies. That’s not to say there’s any proof eating a moderate amount will help you shed pounds, but the fruit does definitely provide fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin A.
