Ain’t nobody gonna mess with this Texas Margarita! Enjoy this twist on the traditional margarita with pineapple juice and some heat from a jalapeño pepper.
Now it’s no secret that I love a good cocktail, especially one with a unique twist. And a margarita? Might be my first love. My friend, Sara, had a Texas-themed party for a group of girlfriends and our daughters recently, and let me tell you, Sara knows how to throw a party! Whenever you’re at Sara’s, it’s a guaranteed night of great food, lots of laughs and out-of-this world cocktails. Remember The Hopeful Spinster? Yup, that was her (and her brother, Phillip), too. I’ve got good friends, don’t I? Let me introduce you to her latest creation: the Texas Margarita.
Texas is all about “go big or go home”, and that’s exactly what this margarita is: a big ol’ glass of tequila goodness. Don’t be scared off by the muddled jalapeño in the recipe. It really isn’t spicy; the pepper just adds a subtle heat. And with the addition of pineapple juice, it’s a perfect twist on a traditional margarita.
