Pineapple Margarita

Are margaritas your cocktail of choice? You’re definitely not alone. Margaritas, when mixed properly and with good ingredients, can be an amazing cocktail. This Pineapple Margarita recipe is a fantastic spring and summer drink and amazing as an outdoor cocktail. These are also fantastic for Cinco de Mayo, and a must-have beverage anytime you’re enjoying Mexican food.

With the addition of pineapple juice and fresh pineapple wedges, this cocktail is nothing short of spectacular! Not overly sweet or syrup-y, this drink has just the right amount of lime-citrus, paired with the pineapple flavors that make it really stand out from something you would otherwise make with a mix. With a fair amount of tequila, this cocktail has some kick – it’s not for the faint of heart, but a definite must for every margarita lover!

Here are the simple steps to mixing this delicious Pineapple Margarita

Step 1: Fill Cocktail Shaker with Ice

A key aspect to making this cocktail ultra-refreshing is to have the ingredients VERY cold. Start with filling a cocktail shaker with ice. If you can, have your ingredients chilled before making the drink as well. Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • Tequila – I like Herradura, (gold or silver) but any good quality tequila will do.
  • Cointreau – this is a citrus liqueur that adds delicious flavor to any margarita.
  • Lime Juice – for a margarita, I always recommend fresh-squeezed. Don’t buy the bottled stuff – it’s just not the same. If you’re making these margaritas for a party or get-together, juice your limes in advance and refrigerate.
  • Pineapple Juice – feel free to use canned or bottled pineapple juice.
  • Optional ingredients: Fresh pineapple slices and kosher salt for rims of glasses.

Step 2: Prep Glasses

Before mixing the cocktail, prep your glasses. Start by running a lime wedge around the rims of the glasses, and then dip the glasses in kosher or margarita salt. Slice up some fresh pineapple and add a wedge to the rim of each glass for a pretty garnish. Additionally, fill the glass(es) with crushed ice.

Glasses: the standard glass for a margarita is an up-style, curved margarita glass. However, rocks-glasses are practical and just as effective for imbibing a delicious fresh-squeezed margarita. These are also easier to rim with lime and salt.

Step 3: Mix and Pour Margaritas

Now that your shaker and glasses are ready, simply pour in the tequila, Cointreau, fresh lime juice, and pineapple juice to the shaker filled with ice. Secure the lid to the shaker, and mix vigorously. Pour into the prepped glasses, and enjoy these amazing Pineapple Margaritas right away while cold.

Do you like your pineapple margarita frozen & blended? No problem!

For a frozen pineapple margarita, simply add ice to a blender. (Approximately 6-8 cubes of ice per drink). Add the same ingredients to the ice, and blend until ice is completely crushed and smooth. Pour the blended drink into prepared glasses and enjoy!

These are the perfect drink to sip on a warm day, with your friends out on the patio and especially on Cinco de Mayo. Amazing with a Classic Pico de Gallo Salsa and/or my Loaded Guacamole and your favorite tortilla chips.
