To me, nothing says sticky mess like making frozen beverages in a blender. I’ve seen it – lived it – and cleaned it. I like to act like I don’t even own a blender for this very reason.
Morgan and Beth both know what kind of mess I can make with a blender, so when margaritas were suggested for our Cowgirls in the Kitchen menu, we all knew they would be on the rocks.
We chose Ina’s Pineapple Margaritas for several reasons — it was sweet enough for Beth, light enough for a school night and easy enough to mix together. We picked up limes, fresh pineapple and some artificially flavored Mexican pineapple soda to top them off. The soda lightened the drink but also made them a toxic neon yellow from all the yellow #7. I’ve left this off the recipe – but feel free to adjust to your artificial flavor liking.
Ina’s Pineapple Margaritas
- 2 cups lime juice, about 20 limes
- 2 cups white tequila
- 2 cups Triple Sec
- 2 1/2 cups fresh pineapple juice
- Fresh pineapple slices, for garnish
Combine the lime juice, tequila, Triple Sec, and pineapple juice. Fill a cocktail shaker 1/2-way with ice and fill 2/3 full with the margarita mixture. Shake for 30 seconds and pour into glasses. Decorate with fresh pineapple slices and serve ice cold.
