This pineapple margarita was made for sipping in the sun! It's made with fresh pineapple purée, white tequila, fresh lime juice, and triple sec, and features a sweet and spicy salt rim. It's simple to make, and it's ready in just 10 minutes!
2ouncespineapple puree, from ¼ fresh pineapple
1ouncefresh lime juice
Sweet and Spicy Salt
Cut off the top and bottom of a pineapple and then cut it into 4 equal pieces. Use one piece then save the rest for another use. Slice off the peel and the hard inner core, chop the pineapple, and then put it into your blender. Blend on high until smooth. (Note: if you don't have a high-powered blender, you may want to strain the puree so there are no hard bits in it.)
Mix the Sweet and Spicy Salt ingredients together in a small dish. Run a cut lime around the rim of a glass then dip the rim into the salt. Fill the glass with ice.
1 teaspoon sea salt, 1 teaspoon sugar, ½ teaspoon cayenne
Put a handful of ice into a cocktail mixer or glass jar, add 2 ounces of the pineapple puree, the tequila, triple sec, and lime juice and stir until cold.
Strain the pineapple margarita into the glass and garnish with a slice of pineapple.
You'll have enough pineapple puree to make 4 cocktails. This is a very easy recipe to scale up for a party. Simply use cups instead of ounces and mix everything in a pitcher. For example, use 2 cups pineapple puree, 2 cups tequila, 1 cup triple sec, and 1 cup lime juice. Some pineapples are sweeter than others. If you find that the margarita isn't quite sweet enough for you, add a little extra triple sec.
