Roasted Grapefruit & Habanero Margarita

Roasted Grapefruit & Habanero Margarita

From the Page

Having a warm day, chased with bright citrus fruit and tequila, all in a salt-rimmed glass is just one of my favorite things. That said, I also love seasonal margaritas, like this roasted grapefruit and habanero margarita. It’s perfect for winter. Curl up next to the fire and enjoy! Now, be careful doing this because these little babies can burn. Do not rub your eyes or any other sensitive area without washing your hands thoroughly first. Add the habanero slices to the tequila and let it steep for about three hours, or longer if you really want a kick! Slice five of the grapefruits in half and place them on a baking sheet. Place them in the broiler for about 10 minutes, or until the skins have roasted and shriveled and the pink flesh becomes charred. Remove the grapefruit and let them cool. When they are just warm to the touch, juice them and place the juice in the fridge to cool. Once the tequila is ready, combine it along with the grapefruit juice, the juice of two limes, the grand marnier and the remaining fruit, cut into slices. Serve the margarita on the rocks in salt rimmed glasses and enjoy! All my recipes are vegetarian, and tend to be simple to make, with few ingredients. You want to know, am I stoned, right? Cooking Stoned is a play on my last name and my personal style – very Californian, very Bay Area, and maybe just a little bit hippy.
