Pineapple Margaritas are a fresh and fruity margarita recipe!
Are Margaritas your favorite cocktail?
I have never, ever been a huge fan of margaritas- you know, the classic kind. Maybe I’ve just not had the right one, or maybe I haven’t found the best tequila to make it awesome or something. But I just don’t love them like most of the rest of the world. FRUITY margaritas are another story- especially the margaritas that utilize fruits that aren’t really the norm. Mango? I’m in. Melon? YES. Watermelon? Give me two of those. And these Pineapple margaritas… I love these too.
What’s the best tequila to use for margaritas?
The answer to that question is to just use a tequila that you like. Don’t go cheap, and there’s not any real need to go all-out super expensive either. Despite what I’ve just explained, I’m all for using good tequila for drinks. This Don Julio stuff is an Anejo variety. It literally takes 14 years to age and produce, resulting in a smooth and flavorful tequila. My husband didn’t want me to use it for margaritas since the flavor of the tequila is mixed in with the strong flavors of the margaritas, but I did it anyways. Anejo tequila is a great sipping tequila too!
How to make Pineapple Margaritas:
I’m the margarita maker! These pineapple margaritas are really quite easy to make. You’ll fill the blender about 1/3-full with crushed ice. Then you’ll pour in the tequila, pineapple juice, lime juice, triple sec, sugar, and Grand Marnier. Then you’ll blend it up, pour your margaritas into glasses and garnish with pineapple or lime.
About 5 seconds after taking this photo, I took the lid off the blender, wiggled it off its base and accidentally turned on the blender again while doing so. Margaritas went everywhere! Fun stuff.
Eventually my margaritas made it to these margarita glasses. I personally love to add fresh pineapple as garnish because fresh pineapple is the BOMB to munch while you’re drinking a cocktail. Enjoy this fruity margarita, and have a Happy Cinco de Mayo!
