Sleepy Sunday Cocktail - Pineapple Cilantro Margarita

Do you follow me on Instagram? If not, you should. My phone takes craaaaappy pictures (it took a swim last summer and has never been quite the same) but I'm good at following back, I promise! If you don't follow me, this is what you missed this week:

 I discovered that Lily cannot find a treat when you put it in this particular part of her snout.

I tried Jack Allen's Kitchen for the first time and it most certainly won't be the last time... amazing food, farm-to-table, and close to my apartment. SCORE on all accounts.

Got a TON of new blog props from a blogger who needed to get rid of them, so I'm super excited to start using them!

We FINALLY explored Peter Pan Mini Golf and had a blast. Tinkerbell here has a suspicious jawline and was super fabulous. Also this was about the point where the Peter Pan related sculptures stopped and it just descended into utter madness. Considering it's a BYOB mini golf I guess that makes sense.

And I had my first taste of Plucker's. Pretty good!

Plus, if you follow my instagram you may have gotten a glimpse of this.

That, my friends, is a pineapple cilantro margarita. It's lovely, refreshing, and perfect to sip on your porch to try and cool off a little in this crazy Texas heat. It also went well with this meal: miso glazed salmon and brussels sprouts with spicy peanut sauce. Recipe forthcoming!

Pineapple Cilantro Margarita
  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec 
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbs cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tsp chile powder
  • 1 tbs sugar

-On a small plate, stir together chile powder and sugar. Use a lime wedge or pineapple slice to moisten the rim of a chilled margarita glass and dip into mixture to rim the glass.

-In a shaker filled with ice, pour in tequila, triple sec, pineapple juice, and lime juice. Shake vigorously and pour into prepared glass. Stir in cilantro. Serve with a lime wedge or pineapple slice.


  1. I'll take a tall glass AND that 'dilla, thankyouverymuch.

  2. OMG that picture of Lily! So cute!!

    And this ... this sounds amazing with the cilantro!
