Description

This pineapple margarita is a tropical spin on the classic! The winning combination of pineapple, tequila and lime makes a killer cocktail.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) tequila blanco or reposado*
  • 2 ounces (1/4 cup) pineapple juice
  • 3/4 ounce (1 1/2 tablespoons) Cointreau
  • 3/4 ounce (1 1/2 tablespoon) fresh lime juice
  • Kosher salt or flaky sea salt, for the rim (optional)
  • Ice, for serving (try clear ice)
  • For the garnish: pineapple wedge

Instructions

  1. Cut a notch in a lime wedge, then run the lime around the rim of a glass. Dip the edge of the rim into a plate of salt (or for a festive look, use Margarita Salt).
  2. Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and fill it with ice. Shake until cold. Strain the margarita into the glass with the salted rim. Fill the glass with ice and serve.

Notes

*To make a pineapple margarita pitcher that serves 8, mix together in a pitcher: 1 1/2 cups tequila, 2 cups pineapple juice, 3/4 cup Cointreau, and 3/4 cup lime juice. Add 3 handfuls of ice and stir until cold. Pour into glasses and serve!
