While I thought they were perfect with no added sweetener you could easily add simple syrup if you like your drinks on the sweeter side. I added a dash of bitters to enhance that grapefruit flavor, but that’s also completely optional. These grapefruit margarita spritzers will be your new go to summer sip!
