Peaches. Plums. Pears.
These are my 7yr old’s request each time I announce that mommy is heading to the grocery store. She’s a doll, but I can never seem to shimmy enough plums from her to make a margarita.
She dices plum into her oatmeal, drizzles them with honey alongside a thick slice of cheese and even suggests that plum juice would make a great salad dressing, she was spot on, amazing.
A spontaneous trip to the park with hubby finally gave me the freedom to steal a few plums. Fresh plum juice, tequila and lime. Enjoy!

Love Margaritas? I know I do. Here’s more great margarita recipes!
Dumb question: How do you juice a plum? I’m wanting this right now! Looks so good.
I use a juicer to juice my pluam, but you can use a blender and simply strain. Hope you give the margarita a try~ Enjoy!
