The Best Margarita You’ll Ever Have

Written by Julie Weinstein

That’s not click bait, guys. This actually is the best margarita you’ll ever have. Really!

As you saw yesterday, Marla Murphy of The Blonde Pantry whipped up some delicious snacks for our pool party shoot, but could you ever really have a pool party without drinks? The answer is a hard no.

So, not only did Marla bring snacks, she also brought drinks! Her pineapple vanilla bean margarita is what poolside drink dreams are made of. If I’m being honest, I’m not a big tequila person (wine is a different story). I’ve just never been a huge fan. Though, this margarita might have changed my mind. Something about the sweet vanilla mixed in with the complex, spicy (Is tequila considered spicy? Told you – not a tequila person!) flavors of the tequila was intoxicating. The smell alone was enough to make me a believer. Bottom line, this drink was delicious. So delicious that we may or may not have taken a break mid shoot to have a couple many sips.

The Blonde Pantry’s Pineapple Vanilla Bean Margarita

Without further ado, keep on reading for the recipe. Spoiler alert : it’s super easy to make!


  • 2 cups of fresh pineapple pureed
  • 1 cup of fresh pineapple juice or coconut water (for a lower calorie option)
  • 1 whole vanilla bean, seeded
  • 2 shots of tequila
  • Mint leaves for garish


  • Puree pineapple and the inside paste of the vanilla bean in a blender.
  • Pour that into a pitcher and add in the remaining ingredients!
