This is the perfect little treat that you can prepare ahead and enjoy later. What a great after dinner cocktail/ dessert!
Bourbon Slushies

Sipping Saturday- Pineapple Margaritas!

I feel like summertime is the perfect time to start sipping margaritas and these are super yummy! 

Using a blender or food processor, blend 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks into a smooth purée. Pour purée into a shaker or pitcher along with a squeeze of lime juice, orange juice, 1/8 cup sugar, 1/4 cup tequila, and 3 tablespoons orange liqueur. Add about a cup of ice and shake or stir vigorously for 1 minute until mixture is well chilled.


Squeeze a little lime juice on one plate and sprinkle salt and coarse sugar on another plate in an even layer. Prepare two glasses by dipping the rim of each glass into the juice and then into the salt/sugar mixture until well-coated. Fill glasses with fresh ice and strain margarita mixture into glasses. Garnish with lime wedges and pineapple chunks, if desired.
I pour them into these super cute glasses from Anthro and relax with a delicious drink!
