PINEAPPLE MARGARITA

PINEAPPLE MARGARITA

A perfect, fruity, summertime cocktail, this Pineapple Margarita is a fun twist on the margarita you’re used to drinking.  Sweet, tangy, and delicious, with only four ingredients.

Who doesn’t love a margarita?  I also love anything that’s fruity with alcohol in it.  Those types of drinks are very dangerous because they go down so smoothly.  

WHAT DO I NEED FOR A PINEAPPLE MARGARITA?

  • Pineapple juice – use whatever brand you enjoy or juice your own
  • Tequila – I like using a blanco tequila to keep the flavor pure with no oak or smoke notes in it.
  • Triple Sec – you can use any orange liqueur you like or have on hand, such as Triple Sec, Grand Marnier, or Cointreau.
  • Lime juice – squeeze or use a citrus reamer to juice a fresh lime instead of using bottled for the best flavor.
  • Sugar or salt and chili powder or paprika or cayenne for rimming the glass

Make it a cocktail party with a few appetizers to serve with your Pineapple Margaritas:

Add a few Jalapeno Guava Margaritas or a Classic Cadillac Margarita to please everybody’s drink preference.
