Well yesterday was Sunday and let’s face it I was craving margaritas…
There’s something so marvelously fresh, zingy, tasty, moreish, slurpable about a good margarita.
And that goes double for frozen ones. I haven’t made frozen margaritas in a year so it was time…
Just look at this frosty, vibrant waterfall of goodness…I’m so ready….
They’re beautifully simple, but you do need a good blender.
Half a pineapple – peeled, cored and cut into chunks
2 handfuls of ice
Juice of 2 limes
1tsp runny honey
1tsp of hot sauce
Tequila (about 6/8 shots, or as much as you fancy)
Salt to rim glasses
Tajin to rim glasses (I’m addicted to this stuff!)
Homemade guacamole & tortilla chips (to serve)
Freeze your pineapple chunks overnight. You could even add a few chunks of mango or some passion fruit in to freeze too, if you like.
When it’s nice and frosty and you’re ready to fiesta, throw them into a blender with your ice.
Add your hot sauce.
Squeeze over your lime juice.
Add your honey.
Pour over your tequila.
Then pour over a little more!
Pop the lid on and blitz!
When you have a beautifully fragrant, smooth mixture, you’re done.
Dip the rims of your glasses into citrus juice, then into salt or Tajin.
Pour your grown-up slush puppy into glasses.
Serve with some fresh guacamole.
Just make sure to drink responsibly… as there’s a serious risk of brain freeze from these muchachos.
