Pineapple Margarita

Summer may be winding down but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. Having a tasty cocktail is a year-round event and gives everyone a reason to celebrate, no matter what the occasion may be. We love fruit cocktails, since they give the illusion of the tropics year round. It’s totally ok to use frozen fruit here, since it is typically picked and frozen at the peak of ripeness. And the flavors are unreal. Take this pineapple margarita for example. It it made like a typical margarita but uses pineapple juice and some tasty chunks of pineapple to give drinkers a real treat.


1 ounce tequila
1 ounce triple sec
1 ounce simple syrup
Juice from 1 lime
2-4 ounces pineapple juice
Pineapple chunks


Combine the tequila, triple sec, simple syrup and lime juice in a large measuring glass. Pour in the pineapple juice and stir until combined. Using a sharp skewer, thread the pineapple chunks. Pour the juice into a glass and garnish with the pineapple skewer.

Serves 1
