Tropical Grapefruit Margarita

Non-Alcoholic Tropical Grapefruit Margarita Recipe

by Rome Velasco •

Our non-alcoholic take on the classic Margarita is a bona fide crowd pleaser, but if you want to up the ante even further, this tropical twist is sure to turn the heat up.

Refreshing, tangy, and easy to make, this non-alcoholic tropical grapefruit margarita recipe packs a citrus punch that compliments Caleño Light & Zesty very well. You'll have a tropical vacation in a glass in no time, and since it’s made with purely non-alcoholic ingredients, you can turn up the party and totally skip the hangovers afterward, sipping sinfully while you stay sober.

You'll find our recommended measurements below, but a note on the agave nectar or syrup: Add a tablespoon at a time, then taste if the sweetness level is to your liking. If you want it sweeter, add more until you reach your preferred taste. If you don't have muscovado, no worries! Just use brown sugar, it'll taste just as sensational.


Non-alcoholic Tropical Grapefruit Margarita ingredients you'll need:

  • 2 oz Caleño Light & Zesty
  • 2 oz freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 to 1 tbsp agave nectar or syrup (to your taste preference)
  • 1 tbsp muscovado sugar, for garnish (you can use brown sugar if muscovado isn't readily available)
  • 1 tbsp sea salt, for garnish
  • Grapefruit slice, for garnish
