Author Notes: I learned about grilled cocktails while attending Kingsford University. If you love the smokiness the grill imparts in food, then you will love this classic citrus cocktail with a twist. By grilling the lemons and lime, the fruit caramelizes and gets a nice char while also making them extra juicy for squeezing into your pitcher.Girl on a Grill

Serves: 4

  • 3 pounds Limes or Lemons
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Tequila
  • 1/4 cup Triple Sec
  • 1 cup Simple Syrup
  • 1 Pitcher full of ice
  1. Dip the sliced citrus in a bowl of sugar so they have a light coating. Grill the citruson medium high heat until they have char marks. Let them rest until they are coolenough to be juiced . Fill your margarita pitcher halfway full of ice, then add thetequila and trip sec. Add the juice to the ice/tequila mixture- by adding it to ice itwill help cut the tartness of the citrus. Add the simple syrup in small batches until the proper sweetness is achieved.
