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. This Texas Margarita is the latest addition to our collection of tequila cocktails. I had this at a Texas-themed party that my friend, Sara, hosted and let me tell you, it’s a keeper. It was love at first sip. 

The Lone Star State is all about “go big or go home”, and that’s exactly what this Texas 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 tropical pineapple juice, it’s a perfect twist on a traditional margarita. Check out our video below to see how easy this recipe is! 

Simply muddle, measure, shake and pour. The Texas Margarita is just what your next Happy Hour gathering needs. Add some Pico Guacamole, Tequila Lime Fajitas and Tres Leche Cake, and your menu is complete.

Why should the Texans have all of the fun? This Texas Margarita recipe brings a little bit of Texas to everyone, one (large) margarita at a time.

Don’t have a muddler?  It’s definitely a great bar tool to have on hand. Perfect for muddling berries, cucumbers, jalapenos…you name it. You’ll use it more than you think!
