The South embodies Glamour and Grit....in the South we begin our soirees with dainty bites and tea sandwiches...this is where we brag on being highbrow, but we can also be as down-home as offering boiled peanuts.......all our party fare requires a bit of planning and thought.......

I am in need of the romance of moonlight and magnolias, the sun-washed wholesomeness of family memories, a note or two of twisted Southern Gothic, a prideful sense of place and my grandmother's heirlooms!

 Grapefruit Margaritas

1 cup tequila
1 cup fresh grapefruit juice
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup Cointreau
1-2 tsp. agave (optional)
4 salt-rimmed Margarita glasses
fresh grapefruit slices for garnish

 Rim 4 Margarita glasses with kosher salt. In a blender, combine all ingredients (adding agave to taste) with ice cubes and blend well to combine. The mixture should be slushy. Pour into salt-rimmed glasses and garnish with fresh grapefruit wedges! May it be a grand party!
