A pineapple margarita is an excellent and slightly sweeter variant of the classic lime margarita

 

Ingredients

  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • ½ oz. lime juice
  • 1 ½ oz. blanco tequila
  • ½ oz. orange liqueur
  • For a spicy pineapple margarita, add ½ serrano pepper

Instructions

  • To make a regular Pineapple Margarita, pour all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously, then strain into a glass with ice and a salted rim.
  • To make the spicy Pineapple Margarita, chop the ½ pepper into a few pieces and muddle it in the shaker before adding the other ingredients.
  • To balance the spice from the Serrano pepper, a touch of agave nectar can be added as well.
  • Shake ingredients with ice, and strain into a glass with ice and a salted rim. Enjoy!

Makes one cocktail.
