This habanero and grapefruit margarita is a refreshing cocktail with a bit of kick to it, making it absolutely ideal to enjoy in the summer time. Created by Erin from the blog Platings and Pairings, the Grapefruit Habanero Margarita contrasts the lightness of citrus with a chili pepper simple syrup.

If you want to attempt to recreate this alcoholic beverage at home, you will need a sliced habanero pepper for the spicy simple syrup as well as tequila, red grapefruit juice, triple sec and salt for rimming the glasses. You can also garnish your grapefruit margarita with an additional wedge of grapefruit on the rim. Erin also added a few slivers of the hot pepper to float on top of the drink.
