With Sandra Lee Cocktail Time™ Margaritas being available just about EVERYWHERE now - including my favorite grocery store, Safeway, I wanted to give the Key Lime one a try. I used the Strawberry Margarita in these Strawberry Sparklers that I made this summer and they were delicious.
Over the weekend during a visit to our cabin, we had plans to make all kinds of different concoctions. However, we stopped after just one. One try and it was perfect. I had to give all of the credit to the margarita mix. We did come up with another recipe - but I'll keep that to myself for now, stay tuned for a second variety.
This can easily be multiplied out to make a pitcher's worth - which I probably should have done in the first place. I couldn't keep up with the rate of consumption!
Salt (poured onto a small plate)
4 oz Sandra Lee Cocktail Time™ Margaritas

Run a lime wedge around the rim of a margarita glass, then add salt by dipping the rim of the glass onto the plate.
In a cocktail shaker, add ice, margarita, and pineapple juice. Shake well.
Add crushed ice to the glass and pour in Pineapple Margarita from cocktail shaker. Top with a splash of dry sparkling wine. Garnish and serve.
