These Spicy Grapefruit Margaritas get their kick from muddling jalapeno slices to release their oils plus an irresistible sweet and salty chili powder rim. I think it's just the right balance of heat from the peppers and chili and tang from the grapefruit and lime juices. Mix tequila and chiles in a large pitcher. 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.
