Summer might be drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean your good times have to follow suit. Fall is just around the corner with winter hot on its heels, but there’s still time to indulge in the sumptuous, citrusy beverages you enjoy all summer.
Looking for ways to keep the party going well into autumn and beyond? SLIQ’s got you covered. Here are three fun, fabulous ways to use our Agave Spirit Frozen Cocktails with grapefruit, the citrusy after-summer treat. Pucker up!
#1 Classic Grapefruit Margarita
The great thing about grapefruit margaritas—or any type of margarita—is how easy they are to make. You don’t need a dozen fancy ingredients or complicated cocktail accouterments. All you need is a few minutes, an ounce of will, and a couple of SLIQ Agave Spirit Frozen Cocktail Pops in Classic Margarita flavor.
If you prefer to sip your marg from a salted glass, start there. Pour out a small amount of salt onto a plate, wet the rim of a glass, and roll it gently until the rim is coated.
Then, assemble your ingredients. The complete list includes:1
- 2 SLIQ Spirited Ice Agave Classic Margarita Pops
- 2 ounces fresh grapefruit juice
- ½ ounce orange liqueur
- 1 lime, freshly juiced
Once you’ve got your ingredients on deck, go ahead and drop them all into a cocktail shaker. To blend the ingredients, you can shake or stir vigorously—just be sure you whip up enough energy to break the SLIQ pop down to a slushy, sippable consistency. If you want, feel free to use a muddler.
Once the drink is blended, simply pour it into a glass, add a lime wedge for a garnish, and enjoy!
#2 Skinny Strawberry-Grapefruit Margarita
Whether you’re counting calories or just prefer a healthier beverage, the Skinny Strawberry-Grapefruit Margarita is the guilt-free way to unwind with a frozen fruit cocktail.
What makes it skinny?
The skinny grapefruit margarita slims down by ditching the liqueur in favor of natural, freshly squeezed juices.2 This scales down the sugar content and cuts calories for a healthier drink that’s no less delicious. And, when you use SLIQ’s Agave Spirit Frozen Cocktail pops, no less decadent. Can you say Skinny Legend?
By now, your taste buds must be tingling. So, without further ado, here’s how to craft the perfect Skinny Grapefruit Margarita.
The ingredients you’ll need are:
- 2 SLIQ Spirited Ice Agave Strawberry Margarita Pops
- ¼ of a large grapefruit, juiced
- 1-ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
- Sparkling water
Start by combining the SLIQ Frozen Cocktail Pops and juices in a cocktail shaker. Shake or stir until the ingredients are well blended, then pour into a glass. Top it off with a splash of sparkling water for effervescence, garnish with a lime wedge or a grapefruit wheel, and you’re all set.
#3 Spicy Grapefruit Margarita with Mango
Heat up the cooler months with a spicy grapefruit margarita. (Warning to those whose palates can’t take the heat: the Spicy Grapefruit Margarita with Mango is hot.)
That said, this margarita recipe subs out tequila for a couple SLIQ Agave Spirit Frozen Cocktail pops and adds the creamy, fruity flavor of mango to keep you—and your tastebuds—happy all year long.
The Spicy Grapefruit Margarita with Mango requires a few more ingredients than your average marg.3 For this margarita recipe, you don’t want to skip decorating the rim of your glass with a zesty combo of salt and chili powder, going slightly heavier on the salt. Do that first, then set it aside.
For the agave margarita itself, you’ll need:
- 2 SLIQ Spirited Ice Agave Mango Margarita Pops
- 2 ounces grapefruit juice
- 1-ounce lime juice
- 2 teaspoons simple syrup
- 1 jalapeño round
The first step is muddling the simple syrup, fresh lime juice, and jalapeño in a cocktail shaker. Make sure that the jalapeño is well-crushed to supe up the spice quotient.
Next, pour in the fresh grapefruit juice and stir. We recommend you strain the mixture to remove any jalapeño seeds and juice pulp before adding the alcohol ice pops. Then, stir or shake to blend. Your salted glass awaits, so pour, sip, and prepare to singe your tastebuds.
