A Cooler Margarita

Who doesn’t love a margarita in the summer time?

I find when I order a margarita at a restaurant it can be hit or miss so I love making my own at home!

I recently did some experimenting and came up with what I think (and so does my husband) is a pretty yummy concoction.  Best of all, you can find all the ingredients at Trader Joe’s.



  • 2 ounces  Trader Joe’s Watermelon Cucumber Cooler
  • 2 ounces Trader Joe’s Margarita Mix (or fresh lime juice or limeade)
  • 1 ounce of your favorite tequila
  • 1 ounce  triple sec
  • 1 fresh lime wedge
  • sugar and salt (yes mixed together) to rim your glass

This will yield you one generous margarita.  Throw all your ingredients into a shaker with some ice and obviously shake.  It’s a nice little arm work out and you get a delicious drink out of it.  I find the watermelon cucumber cooler is a little sweet for my taste so the margarita mix tones that down for me.  The sugar and salt rim compliments this drink nicely as well.

My boys are out camping tonight so I’m going to enjoy one of these out on my deck.  They both also have an aversion to seafood, both real and vegan, so I’m making myself some “crab less” crab cakes by Gardein.  If you are vegan and used to enjoy seafood you must try these.  They are so good and taste like the real deal.
