This Pineapple Margarita recipe combines sweet pineapple juice, tangy lime juice, along with classic margarita ingredients to make a refreshing, tropical, summer cocktail!
When it comes to pineapples, it seems like the times they are in season come and go too quickly. Well, I looked it up and pineapples are actually in season from March until July. I was surprised by this, because, I generally don’t think about yummy tropical fruits until summer months.
However, next March, you will definitely find me on my patio holding one of these delicious pineapple margaritas. I will likely be bundled up but in hopes that warmer weather is on the horizon.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I add some spice to this Pineapple margarita?
Absolutely! This is definitely a sweeter margarita so if you are wanting some spice I would recommend adding in ½ of a jalapeno to your shaker and even Tajín seasoning to the rim of your glass!
Do I have to use silver tequila?
If you prefer a different type of tequila, such as reposado or añejo you can use that for this recipe, I would recommend silver or blanco tequila but any would work!
