You’ll feel like you took a trip to the tropics after one sip of these icy-cold, tropical-style margarita slushies! You’re only 5 minutes and a few basic ingredients away.
You so did not see these coming. Even after yesterday’s clever little forshadow/slip of the tongue of margaritas vs. veggies.
The margaritas are clearly WINNING today.
TGIF, friends. And a happy last day of JULY! (whaaaa??)
So it’s story-time. A few weeks ago when my sister was in town, all the adults decided that even though I’m not “legally” the drinking age, I absolutely needed to make everyone boozy drinks.
I was just like, ME?! Guys, anyone that knows me knows that I’m kind of a small person and literally cannot even handle alcohol in my system unless I want my brain to turn to complete fuzz.
So I sip here and there and more-or-less sample the booze, but that’s pretty much it. I’m probably the most responsible 18-year old you’ll ever meet in that regard.
But you know what? It turns out that even though I am absolutely the worst judge of how much or how little of alcohol to throw into a drink, I can actually make some pretty mean tropical margarita slushies if I do say so myself….
At least, that’s what my older siblings said. After a few sips, the whole fam told me that I should just skip culinary school and go straight to bar-tending.
Yeah, that’ll happen uh, NEVER I’m hoping, guys…
Anyway. I had only a few sips of this slushie only because my sister said that I had to at least TRY some (she filled my glass practically to the top I might add) and whoa, guys….it’s a good thing that I have self-control around things like this because just…..whoa.
All the tropical goodness. Surrounded by all the booze and ALL the icy-cold slush.
Summer ‘sippin. Gotta loooove it! 🌴🌴🌴
I decided you guys probably needed the recipe because EVERYONE needs this kind of heaven.
I’m here to tell ‘ya that you do NOT have to have a degree in bar-tending (hahaha) or even a bunch of super-expensive/fancy ingredients in order to make a killer drink. If your pantry is anything like mine, chances are you already have everything you need to make these beauts!
That was huge hint-hint there, by the way. *cough cough*
Frozen pineapple, lime juice, orange juice concentrate, coconut sugar, triple sec, tequila, and a handful of ice cubes is literally all you need! And your blender. Have I mentioned lately that I heaaaaart my Vitamix??
I kinda ♥ the contents even more though.
See this here? It’s called Friday/andalsoeveryothernightoftheweek PAR-AD-ISE.
The only thing that could possibly make these drinks even better? LITTLE PAPER UMBRELLAS. Do it.!
- 4 cups frozen diced pineapple
- Juice from 2 limes
- 1/4 cup orange juice concentrate
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1-1/2 cups tequila
- 3/4 cup triple sec
- 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.
Margs on me today, guys. Go forth and GULP!
