Fresh Pineapple Margaritas

Fresh Pineapple Margaritas -- quick and easy to make, and so refreshing! | gimmesomeoven.com

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.  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!
