Ingredients

  • 16 ounces chilled pink lemonade, regular or sparkling
  • 6 ounces tequila
  • 2 ounces triple sec
  • juice of 1 lime
  • splash of orange juice, per glass
  • 1 Tablespoon simple syrup
  • Edible Flower Confetti

Edible Flower Confetti

  • Edible Flowers-, Choose a variety of edible flowers for your confetti to create a whimsical flowered rim (see below*). A little goes a long way!

Instructions

Pink Lemonade Margarita

  • To let the carbonation settle a bit, pour lemonade into a large pitcher and let sit a bit while preparing the rest of the cocktail.
  • Fill a large glass or martini shaker with ice cubes (crushed ice would melt too quickly and dilute the drink too much)
  • Add the tequila, triple sec and lime juice.
  • Shake vigorously. If using a glass, stir vigorously and pour into pitcher with lemonade. Set aside.
  • Pour a small amount of simple syrup in to a flat dish or saucer.
  • Dip the rim of the glass into the syrup. You can coat the entire diameter of the rim, or if you are only adding petals to a portion of the rim, as we did, you will only need to dip that smaller area.
  • Using a paper towel slightly dampened with warm water, wipe away any areas where the simple syrup may have dripped or gotten onto by accident.
  • In a smaller dish or workspace, sprinkle your pretty confetti petals. If using assorted petal colors, be sure to mix them up a bit for that real confetti look!
  • Dip the simple syrup’d (like how I made that a verb!) rims into your pile of pretties! Alternatively, you can angle the glass and sprinkle the petals over the syrup’d edges to adhere. If using this technique, be sure to remove the ones that may have gotten in the glass…although, a few floating petals could actually be pretty too!
  • Quickly stir or shake the margarita one more time and carefully pour into the prepared glasses.
  • Top each glass with a final splash of orange juice and enjoy!
  • ¡Salúd!

Edible Flower Confetti

  • Snip the petals into very narrow strips, lengthwise, and then again crosswise to create the mini square confetti shape.
  • Add the pieces to a shallow bowl or dish.
  • Continue with Step 5 above.

Notes

Pink Lemonade Margarita Cutting*Edible Flowers:
  • Rose, chamomile, pansy, clover, dandelion, lavender, sunflower, tulip, marigold and nasturtium…just to name a few.
  • Often available packaged in the produce section at Whole Foods or other specialty grocers (but call first!).
Gr8 Tips:
  • The sparkling pink lemonade I choose to use is from Trader Joe’s; French Market Sparkling Pink Lemonade, in the tall, pretty glass bottle.
If you are also serving handsome gentlemen at this soirée, you could always forgo the "oh so pretty" floral confetti, and rim their margarita with the traditional salt. Cheers!
