Frozen Picante Pineapple Margaritas

Ever since my little trip over to Tulum I’ve been craving margaritas.

Who am I kidding?

I’ve been craving margaritas for years!

There’s something so marvelously fresh, zingy, tasty, moreish, slurpable about a good margarita.

And that goes double for frozen ones.

Well, I’m positively thrilled to tell you that I have nailed the recipe for you to make ’em at home! This little beauty of a cocktail is going to see you right through spring, summer, and god willing, that wonderful autumnal Indian summer we’re going to have.

They’re beautifully simple, but you do need a good blender.

I’ve found the best I’ve ever, ever come across. They don’t sponsor me or send me any freebies, I’m certain they don’t know I exist. But if you are in need of a good blender, you need this one – UK link/US link. It can turn a brick into a smoothie in 2 seconds flat. Probably.

Now that’s out of the way, your ingredients:

Half a pineapple – peeled, cored and cut into chunks (I cheat and use these)

2 handfuls of ice

Juice of 2 limes

1tsp runny honey

1tsp of hot sauce

Tequila (about 6 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 over night. 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.

Dip the rims of your glasses into citrus juice, then into salt or Tajin.

I have one of these, because I love margaritas!

All your missing is the beach, but a Mexican wave can soon make up for that!

Just make sure to drink responsibly… as there’s a serious risk of brain freeze from these muchachos.
