This is kind of an aquired taste but I love it. I salt the rim of the glass instead of adding it to the drink. Read More

OK I know what I made was not "salty"....but it was good. Using the recipe here I skipped the salt and added in 3/4 oz triple sec. Smooths out the grapefruit bitterness and is very refreshing. Read More

Not bad. I'd use margarita salt next time rather than salting the drink. Ahoy! Read More
