These Pineapple Margaritas are a deliciously sweet, refreshing twist on the original! Made with just 4 simple ingredients and perfect for happy hour, weekends, and all summer long!
Happy Cinco de Mayo, friends! Are you celebrating!?!? We're going to be celebrating by spending the weekend packing up our house for the big remodel that starts next week. And I have to say.....as excited as I am for it....there's a huge part of me that's wondering WHY we thought this was a good idea. HA! I guess it's a little late for that.
You know how that is, though? When something is so far away that it's easy to say yes to....and the, as the time comes closer and reality sinks in....it sounds less and less like something you actually want to do? I get that way a lot - with social plans, things I agree to help out with, and....apparently....remodels.
But alas, it's happening. Because the cabinets have been built and the flooring has been ordered and the granite has been paid for. So all we're really waiting on is....US! We need to pack up our living room, dining room, and kitchen. And when I say pack up, I mean pack it ALL up. Because at the end of all of this, those three rooms will all be one big space. And in the mean time, we'll be living in a major construction zone.
So as much as I'd love to be celebrating with one (or three) of these Pineapple Margaritas tonight, I just don't think that's in the cards for me. But I hope you'll have one for me! Because these Pineapple Margaritas are seriously ALL THAT. The perfect little sweet twist on a classic margarita. And best of all, they're made with just 4 simple ingredients! And ready in no time at all. So you can get to celebrating right away!
Just promise me that while you're enjoying Pineapple Margaritas, you think of me. Packing up my margarita glasses instead of drinking out of them. The good news, of course, is that this is a great "problem" to have. At the end of all the work, we're going to have a brand new beautiful space we absolutely love! And I can guarantee I'll make time for Pineapple Margaritas sometime soon. How could I not!?!? They're DELICIOUS!
