Lifestyle and drink blog Heather Christo shares a citrus margarita recipe that experiments with preparation and cooking techniques that add a smokey and savory element to the drink elements. Both the fresh grapefruit and pink salt used are smoked to give the cocktail an unconventional flavoring.

The Roasted Grapefruit Margaritas with Smoked Sea Salt is a unique take on the classically blended margarita drink honing in on cooking techniques to give the drink and unlikely flavor. The grapefruit used in the drink is broiled in the oven with sugar to create a caramelized crust. The fruit is then juiced along with its new smokey flavors and mixed with tequila, lime, Grand Marnier and simple syrup. The smokey flavor is further enhanced with a rim of smoked pink sea salt.
