I have a serious craving for tacos at least once a week. Like an uncontrollable feeling that completely overtakes my entire being.  A little voice that says, “You need tacos in your life RIGHT NOW,” and then I find myself googling taco recipes all day. It’s a vicious cycle.

You guys remember the award winning Garlic Shrimp Tacos I made in my cooking class a few months back? Welllll, I also learned about the perfect sidekick to go with those tacos. I decided to make them the other night and realized that these margaritas can go with ANY taco recipe.


Readers, beware! There is alcohol in this beverage. It’s easy to forget because all you can taste is the mouthwatering passion fruit goodness…all I can say is that, ”it tastes so good once it hits your lips!”

Seriously though, try them out and let me know what you think.

Passion Fruit Margaritas


  • 1 cup simple syrup (1 cup sugar in 1 cup water, heat to dissolve)
  • 1 ½ cup of water
  • 1 package passion fruit pulp (Food 4 Less or Latino market’s freezer section)
  • 1 tbsp. freshed squeezed lime juice
  • 3/4-1 cup silver tequila


  1. Moisten half of the outer rim of a glass with the lime wedge (that way, you get salty on one side, but it doesn’t overpower the drink!) and twist the edge into a saucer full of kosher salt.
  2. In a large pitcher stir all ingredients together
  3. Pour over a full glass of crushed ice.
  4. Adjust sweetness with simple syrup and strength with Tequila according to personal preference
