Pineapple Margaritas

Pineapple Margarita

5 from 20 reviews

An easy mouthwatering, party-worthy pineapple cocktail that is made in less than five minutes in a blender or two minutes in a glass.


  • lime wedges
  • coarse salt
  • 2 ounces silver tequila (tequila blanco)
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce triple sec or Cointreau
  • juice from one lime (about 2 tablespoons)


  1. Run the rim of a glass with a lime wedge to get some juice on it. Place the salt on a small plate and dip the edges into it. Skip to step 3 if making in the blender.
  2. Add ice to each glass.  Add the tequila, pineapple juice, triple sec and lime juice to a cocktail shaker and shake . Then strain the mixture into the glass. Garnish with lime slices and pineapple chunks.
  3. If making in a blender simply add multiple amounts of ice, tequila, pineapple juice, triple sec and lime juice.  Pulse on high a couple of times until the ice is crushed and the drink is blended.  Pour into prepared glass and garnish with limes slices and pineapple chunks.


  • The salt rim can easily be omitted.  It is traditional for margaritas but for those watching their salt you can replace with sugar or omit.
  • Triple sec is a sweet orange flavored liqueur that is sold at most local grocery stores and liquor stores.
  • For best flavor use fresh lime juice.  Roll the limes against the counter top with the palm of your hand for easier juicing.
  • You can use any kind of orange liqueur for this recipe. Grand Marnier, Triple Sec, and Cointreau all work well with Triple Sec being the most budget friendly.
  • Limes wedges or slices, pineapple wedges, lemon wedges or slices, maraschino cherries or grapes can be used for garnish.
  • For a spicy pineapple margarita throw some pickled jalapeno slices into the glass before pouring.
