These super yummy margaritas are insanely easy to make and always a hit! Do not be scared off by the egg white (or aquafaba); it makes the cocktail smooth and slightly creamy.


  • Juice from 2 limes , divided
  • Himalayan pink salt , for rimming glasses
  • 3 cups pink grapefruit juice
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1 oz triple sec
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper , seeded and finely sliced into rounds
  • 2 tbsp aquafaba , (canned chickpea liquid)


  • Moisten the rim of tumbler glasses or margarita glasses with the juice of 1 lime and dip the rim in the Himalayan pink salt to coat.
  • In a large drink container with a lid, combine the grapefruit juice, pineapple juice, tequila, triple sec, the remaining lime juice, jalapeño and aquafaba. Shake with all your might! (If you do not have such a container, combine everything in a pitcher and stir well.)
  • Pour into glasses filled with ice.
