Cinco de Mayo Gone Wild! Two Irresistible Treats To Try


Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo! Wave the banners and shake the maracas!

I love Mexican food and there are literally thousands of recipes I could share with you. As I know you are going to see many of these, I thought I’d share my two most fun recipes for a seriously fun fiesta!

You just can’t go wrong with a Pineapple Cilantro jalapeno Margarita OR Margarita Ice Cream!

Edited Margaraita

Pineapple, Cilantro & Jalapeno Margarita

  • 1 ounce 1800 Reposado or your favorite tequila
  • 1/2 ounce Triple Sec or Grand Mariner
  • 1 jalapeno, muddled
  • 5 or 6 sprigs of Cilantro
  • 1/2 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • zest from one lime


Add all ingredients to blender and process well. You can also add all ingredients to a shaker, shake well, and serve over ice in Margarita salt rimmed glass.




That would be my husband and the deliciousness in the ice cream canister would be my Margarita Ice Cream. As you can see, it was gone before I could take a photo, or really even put it in a cone or bowl. So that photo will just have to suffice. The struggles of a food blogger are real.

Margarita Ice Cream

  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 4 tbsp. tequila
  • 6 tbsp. Grand Mariner
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 cups heavy cream


Place all ingredients in a mixer and blend well. Pour into ice cream canister and churn according to manufacturer’s directions using the ice cream rock salt & ice.
