Mason Jar Margaritas

How on earth could we celebrate a whole week of tequila without making margaritas?!!! We can’t. Duh.

So I decided to share 2 of my favorite margarita things with you.

1. How to make an awesome margarita without any bar tools — just a mason jar and a lid.

2. Pineapple Margaritas which are my current favorite vehicle for tequila.

I do not have bar tools. It seems like one of those grown up things that I maybe should have acquired by the age of 34 (ack!), but I have to say that they have never been high on my list of must-haves. We don’t make a ton of mixed drinks at home — it’s much easier to just uncork a bottle of wine and call it an evening.

Margaritas are different though! Margaritas are a drink you should definitely definitely make at home.

Pineapple margarita Recipe

A basic margarita follows this easy formula: 2 ounces tequila + 1 1/2 ounces Cointreau + 1 – 2 ounces lime juice

That is a recipe you need for your life.

But. I like things a little sweeter. So normally to sweeten a margarita you’d add some simple syrup (a fancy name for sugar water). To make simple syrup you just heat 1 part sugar + 1 part water until the sugar dissolves. But we aren’t doing that today .

Because pineapples.

A couple months ago I had dinner with my family at this awesome place that serves the best shrimp tacos I have ever had anywhere. My brother ordered a pineapple margarita and after stealing more than a few tastes for market research, I had to attempt to make it happen at home, albeit simplified and slightly less … chic. Or something.

Mason Jar Margaritas Recipe

It seriously does not get any easier than this. No fancy shaker. No strainer. No blender. I am a little sad I could not logistically figure out how to salt the rim, but all you have to do is pour, shake, and drink. Which I think more than makes up for it.
