Lightened Up Grapefruit Agave Margarita

The best healthier grapefruit agave margarita is a perfect easy-to-make cocktail with fresh grapefruit juice, a splash of lime and tequila, and with a touch of agave. Swapping liqueur for a simple sweetener is my favorite way to lighten up this cocktail. If you are ready for sunny weather and relaxation vibes, you have to try this lightened up grapefruit margarita.

I can’t think of a more relaxing cocktail than the margarita and so I’ve decided this summer will be my margarita summer and I’ll try different lightened up variations of this classic drink.

“The Margarita, which translates to daisy flower in Spanish, was an inevitable twist on the Daisy, a cocktail template involving spirit, citrus, orange liqueur and soda”. I seriously can’t wait to try that!

Lightened Up Grapefruit Agave Margarita

  • Blanco tequila
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Fresh Grapefruit Juice (store bought or freshly squeezed)
  • Agave nectar I swapped the liqueur that’s traditionally used for a pinch of agave to naturally sweeten this marg!
  • Coarse salt optional but I highly recommend
