I've been making this for months, without a recipe, since the one day that I didn't have enough limes but had an extra grapefruit lying around. It's the absolute best!

Absolutely delicious. I used ghost pepper salt, and the contrast between sweet and salty is wonderful

Tajin is the perfect premade seasoning salt with ground chilis for margaritas!!
