Pineapple Margaritas

I’m a margarita girl, and so I’m constantly trying new versions. If you come to my house, you’re most likely going to be served one of these! Sometimes I store a few frozen margs in mason jars in my freezer. Is there anything better?

Since I’m not into super sweet cocktails, I love making them at home so I can control the sugar content. However, I realize that lots of people like theirs sweeter which is why I also keep a jar of simple syrup in the refrigerator.

Come on over and I’d be happy to serve you one of these pretty little cocktails!

Why we love this recipe:

  • Frozen – We love frozen drinks here in Texas, especially when our summer nights stay warm for way too long!
  • Fruity – If pineapple is your thing, you’ll love the taste of these! So much fruit!
  • Simple – Just five simple ingredients to the best margaritas! Throw it all in a blender and wa-la.
  • Beautiful – I love the bright yellow color of these margs. Add a little garnish to the top along with a nice salty rim!

Ingredients Used:

  • Tequila – Use a good quality silver tequila.
  • Cointreau – I prefer to use Cointreau over Triple Sec. A bit expensive but worth it.
  • Fresh Limes – You’ll need several limes for these. Freshly squeezed limes are key to great margaritas!
  • Frozen Pineapple – This is a key ingredient and frozen pineapple is so easy to keep stocked for these margs!
  • Ice – You’ll need about one cup of ice to add to the blender (for each batch).

Optional Ingredient – I always keep some simple syrup in my refrigerator to sweeten drinks for guests. We prefer ours without, but also realize that most people like a sweeter cocktail.

How to make Simple Syrup:

  1. Combine equal parts water and sugar to a saucepan.
  2. Heat over medium heat and cook mixture until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. If you want to add mint (for mojitos) or limes/zest, you can add that in the pan too.

Recipe FAQs

What is a margarita made of?

Margaritas are normally made with a base of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. From there you can add fruit, simple syrup, etc.

What is in a margarita on the rocks?

A margarita on the rocks includes the primary ingredients but is served over ice instead of being blended with ice.

What is the difference between a mojito and a margarita?

A mojito generally uses fresh mint and rum while a margarita includes tequila and triple sec. They both can include fruit and limes.

Are margaritas high in sugar?

The sugar content in margaritas depends on what you add. Frozen fruit has natural sugars and people often add simple syrup – a mixture made from pure cane sugar.
