Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 ounce (2 tablespoons) canned, tropical fruit salad in natural juices, puréed (from 15-ounce can)*
1 fresh lime
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) simple syrup or 1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/4 ounces (2 tablespoons, plus 1 teaspoon) premium tequila
3/4 ounce (1 tablespoon, plus 1 teaspoon) premium Triple Sec
Orange and lime wedges, for garnish



Martini shaker or pint glass

Shaking tin




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

For one cocktail drink: Juice the lime and pour into martini shaker. Add simple syrup, tequila, Triple Sec and 1 ounce tropical fruit salad purée. Fill martini shaker with ice and shake vigorously 10 times. Strain into chilled martini glass and garnish with an orange and a lime wedge.

Serving glass: 10-ounce martini glass (chilled)

Servings: 1

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.
