Sage and Pineapple Margaritas
*If you are new here, WELCOME! For this post, I provide you with a delicious recipe for Sage and Pineapple Margaritas!
With summertime just around the corner, I’m looking forward to whipping up some tasty and fun drinks to cool off after a long day. There’s something about sitting on a patio and sipping a drink during those beautiful evening hours when it’s still warm, but no longer scalding hot. It just feels like summer!
If you’re like me, then you’ll enjoy this delicious twist on a traditional margarita.
Sage and pineapple come together to add a sophisticated depth in this drink. Paired with the typical lime and tequila in most margaritas, the sage and pineapple compliment and then elevate the cocktail. It’s really delectable!
And, if you don’t have a beach vacation planned this summer, this sage and pineapple margarita will make you feel like you’re there even when you can’t be.
If you’re stopping by here while searching for recipes, you may not know that the recipes here are all inspired by books! This particular recipe was created after reading The Rosie Project. If you love reading, check out more about this great book HERE!
Part romance, part comedy, and part quirky–The Rosie Project takes a unique narrator (think university professor with Asperger’s) and tosses him into the deep end as he tries to find a wife through his own carefully calculated survey. That just spells disaster!
