National Margarita Day

Monday, February 22, 2016

Whoo-hoo! Happy National Margarita Day everyone! Fun fact, we love margaritas. Who freaking doesn’t? This past weekend I concocted some yummy drinks that I wanted to share for this glorious “holiday.”

See below on what we shook up! Safe celebrating friends!

 Pomegranate Margarita
·           Ingredients:
o   Lime wedge
o   Salt
o   4 ounces white tequila
o   2 ounces Triple Sec
o   1/2 cup pomegranate juice
o   1 lime, juiced 
o   Club soda (optional)
·         Directions:
Pour salt onto a plate. With a lime wedge, rub along the rim of a glass and dip glasses upside down to salt the rim. Fill glasses with ice. In a cocktail shaker with ice place the tequila, triple sec, pomegranate juice, and lime juice. Pour into the salt-rimmed glasses and top off with club soda. Garnish with a lime wedge, if desired.

 Pineapple Margarita Slushies
·            Ingredients:
o   4 cups frozen diced pineapple
o   Juice from 2 limes
o   1/4 cup orange juice concentrate
o   1/2 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
o   1-1/2 cups tequila
o   3/4 cup triple sec
o   1 cup ice cubes

Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend on high speed until mixture is smooth and slushy. Serve margarita slushies in a salt-rimmed glass immediately, OR place in freezer until ready to serve.
