Orange and lime wedges, for garnish

Martini shaker or pint glass


Shaking tin


Strainer


Blender



Preparation:



Do ahead: Empty canned, tropical fruit salad into blender and purée the contents well.

Nutritional Information Per Serving: Calories 240 (based on 80-proof tequila and using 1 tablespoon sugar)**



*Note: One, 15-ounce can of tropical fruit salad in natural juices makes 15 drinks.



**Note: Higher-proof tequila contributes more calories; Triple Sec is commonly 48 proof.



***Note: Want a non-alcoholic margarita punch instead? Combine the puréed fruit with a carbonated lemon-lime drink in a tall glass with ice – the amount to match your taste, and garnish with orange and lime slices.

Notes

Grab a can of tropical fruit salad from the pantry, and whip up a cool, refreshing Mexican cocktail. This ice-cold infusion is easily created with a quick whirl of the blender . First make a fruit purée, then a quick shake with all the ingredients.
