pineapple margarita

I have always been a fan of tequila, and when I am feeling well, I enjoy drinking a glass of reposado or añejo tequila, with a couple of ice cubes.

But sometimes I just want something fruity and fun! With tequila, of course!

In my family I am known for making margaritas for our gatherings. For Thanksgiving, my family orders my Thanksgiving Margaritas every year.

These pineapple margaritas are smooth and easy to drink, they actually remind me a bit of those Thanksgiving margaritas that everyone loves! Pineapple pairs wonderfully with tequila: the sweet flavor and hint of acidity almost magically blend with the smoky tequila.

If you’re looking for something that’s a little different from the “usual” margarita recipe, this is a must try! I have it on my to-do list for Cinco de Mayo!

preparation tips

  • Try making these pineapple margaritas with Grand Marnier instead of triple sec for extra punch!
  • I try to keep my drinks in the middle when it comes to strength. You can adjust the ratios of tequila to juice, so the drink is as strong or as smooth as you like. When I serve a group, I usually err on the side less strong just in case!
  • Try a margarita salt or lime salt infusion for a kick!

Frequent questions

What is the best tequila to use?

Since our pineapple margaritas are gold in color, you can use silver tequila (white tequila) or gold tequila for this recipe. Since you’re mixing it with sweet pineapple juice, just about any tequila will taste good!

I don’t recommend using the cheapest tequila, but you don’t have to spend a lot of money to buy top-shelf liquor either. Something medium is perfect, like Raven or Stonetalon (pictured here).

Should I use fresh or canned pineapple juice?

Fresh or canned pineapple juice will work for this recipe, so you can use whatever you have on hand or whatever you prefer. It’s hard to beat fresh pineapple juice, so if you have a juicer and the time, I highly recommend giving it a try!

How do I make a jar?

To make a pitcher, triple or quadruple the amount of ingredients, depending on the size of your container. Combine all ingredients except salt and ice in pitcher and stir until well blended. Store the jar in the refrigerator.

If you’re not serving the drinks right away, I refrain from adding ice so I don’t dilute the drinks. When ready to serve, pour ice into glasses, then pour margarita mix into ice glass.

Can you make a frozen margarita with that?

Sure! Triple the amount of ingredients in your drink and add them to an ice blender. Blend until smooth and velvety.

When I make frozen margaritas, one trick I use is to freeze the extra juice in an ice cube tray and use that instead of ice. This ensures that the flavor doesn’t get diluted as much as it would if you used regular ice.
