Pineapple Margarita - Sweet MaMa Mia Spirits

Pineapple Margarita - Tropical Spirits "Take You to the Beach"

Pineapple Margarita

Nothing but fruity bliss is a great description for this adult alcoholic cocktail. If you're a fan of pineapple, you'll enjoy the sweetness the pineapple brings out in the tequila in this beverage. Plus, this margarita is so easy to make, using just a handful of ingredients culminating in a perfect combination of tropical flavors.

Serves: 1

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Suggested Tools:

· Small cutting board

. Jigger

. Small sharp knife

. Manual juicer

. Cocktail glass

Optional: Shaker


. 3 ounces pineapple juice (I used from the pack of 6, 6-ounce cans)

. 1 to 1 ½ ounces of your favorite tequila (depending on how strong you like your cocktail)

I used Cazadores tequila.

. ¾ ounce Cointreau

. ¾ ounce fresh lime juice (usually just requires one lime)

. 1 tablespoon simple syrup (you can buy a bottle or I've shared the recipe below)

. Ice cubes


1. Begin by preparing the glass rim with either sugar or kosher salt (I used sugar). Just take a slice of the lime and run the lime around the glass rim. Then roll the damp glass rim around sugar that has been poured flat on a saucer.

2. Fill the glass a little over half full with ice cubes. Then add the pineapple juice (shake the can well before pouring), tequila, Cointreau and simple syrup and stir gently well until all ingredients are well blended and cold. An alternate method would be to place all ingredients in a hand shaker and shake the contents until well blended and cold.

Optional: Garnish with pineapple slice and/or a lime slice.

How to Make Simple Syrup:

Simple syrup only has only two ingredients - water and sugar. Just use a 1:1 ratio, meaning if you used one cup water, then you would use one cup granulated sugar. Since you won't need much simple syrup for this recipe, you could just make it with one-half cup water and one half cup granulated sugar.

In a small pot, bring the water to a low boil and add the sugar and stir. Boil on medium heat for about one minute or until the sugar has totally dissolved. Set aside to cool. The syrup can be stored for about four weeks in the refrigerator.
