Really, it doesn’t have to be Cinco de Mayo or even summer for me to enjoy a margarita. I just have to be thirsty! Well, no, honestly, I associate margaritas with sitting around a table with my best friend, munching on salty chips, talking, and sipping a margarita. It’s that entire process mostly that I desire. Don’t underestimate girl time. I’ll never understand couples that don’t want their partner to enjoy time with their friends. I always come home refreshed, renewed, and with a greater appreciated for Big Daddy and my boys.

Of course, sitting around chatting and sipping a Pineapple Margarita with your partner is always fun too!

Basically, drink all the margaritas with anyone you like!

I digress.

Pineapple Margarita

Pineapple Margaritas make a fun twist on the classic margarita. They’re simple to make and slightly sweeter than the traditional counterpart. I prefer fresh orange juice and fresh lime juice in my margarita. However, orange liqueur can be used instead of orange juice. Whatever you do, please don’t use bottled lime juice. It tastes nothing like freshly squeezed lime juice and, in my opinion, will ruin your drink.

You can do a sugar rim or salt rim (or neither) with this Pineapple Margarita. Whichever one you choose, zest the lime and mix into the sugar or salt before slicing it into wheels for a garnish. This adds another layer of flavor.

This Peach Margarita also makes a wonderful cocktail.

Moving from this pineapple margarita and summer in to fall, you’ll have to try this Halloween Margarita and this delectable Italian Amaretto Margarita.

  1. Wet the rim of your glass with a wedge of fresh lemon.
  2. Add a tablespoon of Old Bay seasoning to a flat dish.
  3. Dip the glass rim into the seasoning and turn to coat.
