Snuggled in our Canadian hideaway, I knew that we would have many cocktail hours on the dock to look forward to. I brought along Ben Reed’s book Margaritas and other Tequila Cocktails. It was basically my desert island book–one woman, alone in the wilderness with one mixology book and many thirsty guests.
One of the summer favorites from Reed’s book, though not a technical margarita, was the Pinarita.
- 2 oz. gold tequila
- scant oz. triple sec
- scant oz. fresh lime juice
- 1 oz. pineapple juice
- thin slices of fresh pineapple, to garnish
We used the Margaritaville DM1000 Margaritarator for adding ice to our drink. First, we mixed all of the ingredients in a pitcher, poured it into the Margaritaville pitcher up to the 12-14 oz. line and pressed the button. Simple and delicious.
I’d also like to add that we used canned juice, Jose Cuervo Gold (all there is in Canada at the local LCBO store housed in a trailer) and lime concentrate. It was tasty–imagine if you had the fresh ingredients?
We’ve joked long and hard about the margaritarator. Actually, a large pic can even be found on our How? page. This poor, ridiculous machine was never taken seriously, I mean, who buys something like that?
Mombshells, of course! I took one look at the BevMo display and promptly plopped the huge box in my cart. It’s actually called the Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker. (By the way, Joe, the BevMo Man, was very impressed with my purchase and will be joining us this week for Friday Night Mombshell Margaritas)
MOMBSHELLS IN MARGARITAVILLE
We revved up the dream machine and christened the over-priced blender on our Mombshell retreat this week. Have to admit, it did make a mighty fine tasting, icy cold margarita. Thumbs up from the Shells.
