MFH says

The grapefruit and lime in this margarita cocktail cuts right through the punchy 100% agave tequila. It is the perfect combination of sour and spicy, and sweet and refreshing. If you love citrus, this modern take on the classic cocktail will be right up your street.

Don’t forget to salt that rim! It makes all the difference.
