Ingredient Notes

ingredients for passionfruit margaritas

Passion Fruit: Frozen passionfruit pulp cubes can be found in the freezer section at many stores. I got these at Wegmans! Microwave them for 1 minute to turn to juice. 6 cubes = 2 oz of juice.

Tequila: I prefer to use tequila that says “100% agave” on the bottle, which means that no additives, fillers, sugar, or other junk have been added! My favorite is 1800 or Patron. I prefer Blanco tequila because it has a lighter taste and goes well with this beach margarita.

Fresh Lime & Orange Juice:  Freshly squeezed lime juice gives this beach margarita the perfect amount of tartness, while the orange juice adds to the sweetness of the drink.

Honey Simple Syrup: Combine equal parts of honey and water in a small bowl and stir. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir until the honey is dissolved. Let it cool before using. You can also heat it up briefly on the stove to let the honey dissolve.

Recipe Step by Step

steps for making passionfruit margaritas
  1. Add ice to a cocktail shaker along with the tequila.
  2. Add the passionfruit pulp (or juice), lime juice, orange juice, and sweetener of choice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds.

  4. Fill both glasses with ice, then pour the margarita mix over top. Garnish with a slice of lime (or a pretty flower), and enjoy!

FAQs

Are these margaritas skinny?

While they aren’t the “skinniest”, these margaritas are only 172 calories per serving. If you want to make it more skinny, cut the agave nectar and orange juice in half!

Can I use passion fruit juice instead of pulp?

Yes! It’s easy to find frozen passion fruit at Costco, frozen pulp cubes at Wegman’s and other local grocery stores, however, you can also just use passion fruit juice instead. While the pulp is thicker, juice will work just fine!

What flowers are good for the garnish?

You can use hibiscus, plumeria, or even just a colorful umbrella to jazz of this beach margarita.
