Plum Pineapple Margarita
I’ve been hoarding plums from my kids. Isn’t that horrible? Tiny piles, stashed near the fridge, next to the basket of potatoes where I know they would never look.
There I said it. Out loud. I’m a plum hoarder.
The thing is I picked up a few plums at the grocery store last week. And they were SO juicy, plump and sweet I knew I just had to make a margarita.
The next day they were ALL GONE. All of them, what? This happened three times over the course of the last week. KIDS!
So late Sunday night I headed to the store in my raggedy jeans, along with my little sister and went plum picking, again.
Then I went home and HID them, all of them. Last night I retrieved my hidden plums and preceded to assemble my juicer when I heard tiny footsteps, and there they were.. these kids… I swear.
What’s a plum hoarder to do? Give in and share. Can you blame them? They are SO juicy, plump and sweet.
Mother of the year I tell you.
Lucky for them I had half of a pineapple to throw into the mix and guess what? It made the margarita even better. A sweet cotton candy shade of pink swirled with a pop of pineapple. OH yes, so sweet!
Plum hoarding is overrated. Enjoy!
