One of my favorite holidays is on Sunday and even though I’ll be traveling, you better believe I’ll be celebrating with a margarita in hand! I absolutely love Mexico - the food, dresses, Otomi pattern you name it, I’m here for it! We are headed to Punta Mita, Mexico in a few weeks and I’m getting ready by celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a hydrating margarita recipe. I promise I will post a trip recap after this stay in Punta Mita as I know many of you have asked.
There are so many great margarita recipes and inspirations on my Pinterest page and blog that you can find below, but I have a new fresh recipe for you! The older I get the more focused I am on cocktail recipes that will minimize the next day sluggish feeling. I made a spin on the flavors of a Pina Colada and Skinny Margarita on the rocks. Cheers!
HYDRATING CINCO MARGARITA
3 oz Canned coconut water ( in Mexico they serve it straight out of the fresh baby coconut, but I don’t trust myself with a big machete, so we will stick to TJ coconut water)
1 oz Canned pineapple juice (fresh if you can find would be better, but I used canned Dole)
2 oz Blanco tequila
½ a lime juice squeezed
Lots of ice
Sliced pineapple (I buy pre sliced at TJ)
TJ chile lime seasoning
Mix all the ingredients together and pour over ice. To garnish, place slices of limes floating in glass and one pineapple spear with a dusting of TJ chile lime on the edge. It visually lets your guest know that this margarita is slightly tropical and is delicious.
