Never Miss a Delicious Recipe:

Frozen Pineapple Mint Margarita

Happy Cinco de Mayo… with this super duper refreshing Frozen Pineapple Mint Margarita! The drink itself is so good that it can spell ‘viva’, ‘olé, or any other celebratory word in Spanish and many other languages. 🙂

Cinco de Mayo or May 5th is a Mexican day of celebration, very popular in the USA, which commemorates the victory of the Mexican army over French forces at the Battle of Puebla– not Mexico’s Independence Day, folks!  The celebration includes music, dance, great food, and of course, drinks. 

You may be asking yourself what this has to do with Brazil and this blog, right? Well, besides the fact I live in the United States where the celebration is popular, nothing at all. I don’t usually celebrate the date… until this year, when my fellow blogger, Kate from Hola Jalapeno, invited me and a bunch of other Latin and American bloggers to celebrate this fiesta with Margaritas. So yes, babe, it is #margaritaweek… and there is a flavor for everyone.

Because this Brazilian has joined the fiesta, I had to put something of Brazil in it: namely, the combination of flavors of pineapple and mint, which is very popular in Brazilian drinks, and of course, the green and yellow of the Brazilian flag.

I am celebrating with this SLUSHY Frozen Pineapple Mint Margarita made from frozen pineapple and limeade concentrate, fresh mint leaves, sugar, tequila, and lots of crushed ice — all blended in a blender and festivel enjoyed.  The contrast of sour/sweet from the drink and salt from the rim of the glass make this drink a real must-have…

… and this celebration is the perfect excuse to lift a glass full of goodness. Make it,  take a sip, and experience a fiesta in your mouth.

So CHEERS!!! — to Mexico, me, and you. 😉

    Happy Cinco de Mayo! Not at all a big deal in Mexico, I know, but I like it. Particularly since it gives me a chance to drink a margarita! Never had a pineapple-mint one, but love the idea. This looks terrific — thanks.
