Trader Joe's Trip + Homemade Spicy Marg

Happy Sunday and Happy Father's Day!


I spent the morning running a handful of errands, which included target, the car wash, and of course a quick stop in Trader Joes.


I picked up some new items which I'm very excited about and some old favorites, but I thought I'd share with you all what I got!


(this does not picture everything that was in my cart by the end of the trip! haha)



  1. Succulents! (x2) I'm working on getting these arranged with my others and can do a post on all of my cacti and succulents later. I love the larger grouping!

  2. Strawberry Lemonade Synergy Kombucha (been loving this flavor during the hot weather due to how refreshing it is)

  3. Cheese Bites - the truffle ones! I haven't tried these yet but have heard that the truffle flavor is strong so I'll let ya'll know what I think.

  4. Tomato Basil Hummus Dip (one of my favorite dips from TJ's)

  5. Light Brie (because warm brie with jam drizzle = heaven)

  6. Brioche Crisps (going to have the brie + these crips tomorrow as a happy hour/appetizer and think they'll pair quite well together!)

  7. Organic Jalapeno Limeade (this was a new product and limited edition! Of course, it screamed spicy marg to me)

  8. Trader Joe's Vanilla Cold Brew Coffee (drank this on the way home from my errands as a midday pick me up!

  9. Celery Sticks and Avocado from the produce section

  10. Strawberry Lemon Sugar Scrub (also new! I've been pleasantly surprised by TJ's beauty items/soaps so I'm happy I snagged this today!)




I've seen a few awesome reviews on this so I was excited to get my hands on it! Plus it was only $4.99!


I recently picked up the Watermelon Face Spray and the Rose Oil and loved them, so I have high expectations for this as well!


Let me know if you'd like to see a review of these products or any other face/beauty/home products from Trader Joes you've been curious about!








Now for the EASIEST Spicy Margarita Recipe:


What you'll need:

  • Trader Joes Organic Jalapeno Limeade

  • Silver Tequila

  • Lime

  • Ice

  • Sprite or Ginger Ale (optional)

  • Salt or sugar for the brim (also optional)


As I mentioned, when I walked past the shelf with the Jalapeno Limeade my mind immediately thought - margarita. Then, two seconds later who girls who work there came up to me and started telling me how they had done the same thing and loved it!


All I did was mix a shot (or two if you're feeling wild) of silver tequila, and about half a cup of the limeade. Then I added a handful of ice and a splash of ginger ale (I enjoy the carbonation and taste of this but totally up to you!) For garnish I added a few lime wedges, but you could also include jalapeno. This was spicy, refreshing, and so super simple!


The option to add salt or sugar to the brim of your glass is always there as well!



I will definitely be making this again and picking up a few more jars of this limeade before its taken off shelves!


Margarita Monday anyone?
