Barefoot Contessa How Easy is That? by Ina Garten

1 lime cut in wedges, optional
Kosher salt, optional
1 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice (4 limes)
1 cup triple sec orange liqueur
3 cups ice
1 cup white tequila
If you like a salt rim on the glasses, rub the lime around the edge of each glass and then dip the rim lightly in a plate of kosher salt. Set aside to dry.
Combine the grapefruit juice, lime juice, triple sec, and ice in a blender and purée until smooth. Pour into a large pitcher and stir in the tequila. If you’re not serving the margaritas in salted glasses, stir ¼ teaspoon of salt into the pitcher of margaritas. Believe me, it will make a difference.
Serve ice cold.
