Fresh Pineapple Margaritas

This past weekend is going down in the record books as one of my favorite in history.

Well, in all of my 30 years, to be exact.  :)

Since you only turn 30 once, and since I happen to be obsessed with Mexican food, I decided this year seemed like the perfect occasion to throw a big Cinco de Mayo birthday fiesta.  It was a night of all of my favorites — my favorite family (including my sis and brother-in-law who surprised me by flying in from Chicago!), my favorite friends, my favorite food, my favorite drinks, and all of this took place in my favorite coffee shop.  I was pretty much smiling from ear to ear all night.  My friends and family blow me away with their awesomeness.

More stories and photos to come on Gimme Some Life.  But of the many highlights of the night, I’d have to say that the margarita machine and our tequila tasting turned out to be delicious fun.  I was generously supplied by Casa Noble with 3 different kinds of organic tequila for the party so that we could host a tequila tasting.  And my friends and family were more than happy to participate.  We even Googled (and then posted signs with directions) for the fancy steps for exactly how to taste tequila, which resulted in endless amusement and some terrific photos.  Such a great idea for a party!

Afterwards, we still had some tequila remaining, so yesterday I whipped up some fresh pineapple margaritas to celebrate.  The super sweetness of the pineapple was absolutely perfect with the tart lime margaritas, and the good-quality tequila definitely made a difference.  Can’t wait to make these again soon!

Casa Noble Tequilas:

Crystal Tequila: We all enjoyed this “silver” or “blanco” tequila.  This is what I also used in the margaritas, which was perfect!

Reposado Tequila: This yummy tequila is matured in French white oak barrels for 364 days.  Smooth, sensuous and full-bodied, this was a definite favorite with the group!

Anejo Tequila: This one was definitely my favorite.  It literally takes 14 years to age and produce, resulting in a smooth and flavorful tequila.  Loved it!

    This is a pretty good summer drink. Possibly it needs to be mixed with cracked ice to make it colder or shaken with ice.

    Ohhhhhhhhhh, these look SO good! But because of meds, I can’t drink any alcohol! I’m also diabetic, so the less sugar the better. Ali, can you think of a way I could make these so I can drink one?!?!??!?!
