We loved our frozen version of this, but sometimes drinks go down a little easier when they aren’t so frozen, so we wanted to make this version, a Pineapple Margarita on the rocks. It’s so easy to make, you just need 3 ingredients, garnishes not included. You can make this stirred, if your ingredients are chilled, or toss them into a shaker cup for a frosty cold drink. Let’s talk about how to make this easy Pineapple Margarita.

How to Make a Pineapple Margarita

To be honest, I’m a bit obsessed with pineapple cocktails. Whether it’s a Pina Colada or a bright Blue Hawaiian drink, there’s something so refreshing about cold pineapple juice. It’s not overpowering and I just think it makes for a really great cocktail. Here’s what you’ll need for these Pineapple Margaritas-

Pineapple Margarita Ingredients

  • 2 oz. tequila
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 4 oz. pineapple juice
  • Salt for rimming
  • Lime slices and pineapple wedges for garnish

What Kind of Tequila for Pineapple Margaritas?

Blanco tequila, or silver tequila, is the best for margaritas. Lately, we have been using Olmeca Altos Tequila, because it is an award winning, but budget friendly tequila option. We are also fans of Espolon tequila, like we used in our Ranch Water cocktail. Any silver tequila you love or have on hand will work just fine.

Pineapple Margarita Directions

  1. Rim your glass, by running a lime wedge around the edge, and dipping into the coarse salt. To make things easy, you can add a shallow layer of salt to a saucer for dipping.
  2. Add a handful of ice to your glass. Again, if you don’t have chilled ingredients, you may want to add these ingredients to a shaker cup, shake well until frosty, and then add to your glass.

3. Add tequila to your glass.

4. Add lime juice.

5. Fill the rest of the way with pineapple juice. If you use canned pineapple juice, make sure to give it a good shake before you open it, or stir it well before using, as it tends to settle.

6. Garnish with fresh limes and pineapple. We used fun little lime wheels and a small wedge with the outer edge of the pineapple for a fun presentation.
