I was recently invited to be a guest of Princess Cruise lines on an fantastic trip down to Mexico’s “Riviera”, through Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas – and had an amazing time. Beyond all the amazing sights and warm weather, we enjoyed SO MUCH DELICIOUS FOOD on board the Ruby Princess!
I am a huge fan of all of the foods and drinks we had on the Ruby Princess – there was so much to taste and savor!
During our trip, my favorite quickly became the Princess 3 citrus margarita from the pool bars.
It was sweet, tangy, a little tart, and full of flavor – the perfect drink to cut the heat!
First things first…. enjoying everything the @princesscruises Ruby has to offer! I can’t wait to jump in this pool and head to Puerto Vallarta- a girls getaway is just what I needed to #comebacknew ! #sweetcs #travel #travelblogger #trip #vacation #passportready #travelnow #girlstrip #cruise #besttripever #ad

The margaritas on board are a bit dangerous – but only because they are SO so good (and I am happy to report that while you do pay extra for drinks on board Princess cruises, they do NOT cut back on portions or pour a weak drink).
I could go through an entire bucket of them, they tasted so good – so I knew I needed to recreate them to make them at home!
I added another fruit to my margarita at home, and I love this recipe! I tastes pretty close to the original, and it is so easy to make – you can also make it blended and rimmed with sugar as the Ruby staff serves them, but I prefer margaritas over ice and rimmed with salt.
Hot tip: to rim your glass perfectly, start by using two shallow small plates, filling one with kosher salt, and one with lime juice or water. Dip your glass in a bit of lime juice (or water) and then roll it in kosher salt, making sure to get both the inside and outside of the glass.
Make your drink in a shaker, and then pour in to the middle of the glass, so you don’t disturb the salt.
If you like finer salt (so it has more of a sugar consistency), simply toss the kosher salt into a blender for a second or two and pulse. Don’t just use table salt, it wont look as flaky and dry.
Timesaver: if you don’t want to use up all your tequila (or go buy orange liqueur), you can use a pre-mixed margarita in with the juice.
Make it Virgin: to make a delicious 3 citrus “no-garita”, swap the tequila for and the orange liqueur for Ginger Beer or a Dry Soda (make sure you buy a variety that isn’t super sweet.)
