Pink Grapefruit Margaritas

I have been waiting forever to post this from deep in my files.  I was going to post it last summer but those of you who have been around An American Housewife for a while know that my husband was relocated 1,000 miles away last May and I was suddenly thrust into a busy world of working full time, single parenting three kids and selling our home, yada yada.  My website and posts from last summer weren't really what I had planned back in April before our world shifted.  Believe me, I didn't have time for a Pink Grapefruit Margarita last summer - although I probably needed one. Or three.  :)

I had kept a photo in my files of this drink forever but ironically, I cleaned out my files about 2 months ago and deleted the image.  My bad.  So... I just used the internet to get a image this morning.
